Since 2000, Cambridge University has been organising the Student Conference on Conservation Science (SCCS). The student conference helps young conservation scientists gain experience, learn new ideas and make contacts that will be valuable for their future careers.
In 2010, for the first time a Cambridge University SCCS was held in Asia – in Bangalore, India. The conference was then repeated in 2011. In addition to the University of Cambridge, this was put together by the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore and the Tropical Biology Association. Overall, more than 500 students attended the conferences, which facilitated interaction, exchange of ideas and methods among young scientists, and the building of contacts and knowledge among young researchers in all aspects of conservation science.
In 2010 and 2011, ADMCF funded these first two Cambridge University SCCSs in Asia.
