Niko Tinbergen Award

Every second year we award the Niko Tinbergen Award for outstanding scientific contributions in Behavioural Biology and related topics. The award takes the form of a research grant of € 1500 and the recipient is asked to give a keynote talk about their work at ECBB and present an overview in the EthoNews.
