European COBICE studies deadline reminder

To all European anneliders,

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the next application deadline 
for COBICE is October 14. COBICE is the Copenhagen Biosystematics 
Center, a member of CETAF, the Consortium of European Taxonomic 
Facilities. The European Union has provided considerable funds to allow 
researchers from member states and associated nations (basically all 
European countries including Israel, but apparently not Russia or Turkey) to 
visit and carry out research at, in this case, the Zoological Museum in 
Copenhagen. In this particular round, the visit should be planned for the first 
half of 2003.   

An application should cite important resources at the Zoological Museum that 
are necessary for the intended project (don't let the word project scare you, 
just a title describing what you would like to do); in most cases our 
collections are the obvious choice, but the availablitily of two scanning 
electron microscopes may also be a factor. In general, practically all good 
applications are accepted, and I'm quite certain that previous users of this 
opportunity have been very pleased. If succesful, all practical matters are 
taken care of (travel expenses, an apartment or hotel room, even a little 
spending money).   

The first step, if you are interested, is to read more about the program at 
http://www.zmuc.dk/commonweb/COBICE.htm and at this site you will also 
find an electronic application form which can be submitted by e-mail. The 
application form is a bit irritating, in the typical European way, because you 
have to answer essentially the same question (the purpose/expected 
outcome of your visit) in about 10 different ways, but it's worth the bother.   

A practical matter: if you wish to contact me personally about a possible 
application, then you must do so by Friday the 11th, because I will be on 
vacation next week.  

 Looking forward to seeing some of you in Copenhagen,
