EAVP statement on the war in Ukraine
The European Association of Vertebrate Palaeontologists stands with our Ukrainian colleagues at this difficult time. We are appalled by the loss of life and the destruction of Ukraine’s heritage. The EAVP was itself formed as an action against xenophobic attitudes and behaviours within the scientific community, uniting across former Cold War countries to make vertebrate palaeontological discourse at our meetings as accessible as possible. Science requires mutual respect and trust, thus we roundly condemn states that conduct military incursions into sovereign nations, and express solidarity with our kindred Russian scientists who share this view.
EAVP Research Grant 2021 open
EAVP is happy to announce the call for the EAVP Research Grants is now open. Visit the dedicated webpage for more information and to apply: ERG – EAVP Research Grants
For the 2021 the EAVP is raising the ERG grants up to 1000 Euros. In addition, understanding the difficulties likely to be encountered in using funds for travelling, for this call EAVP will also consider funding proposals focussed on the acquisition of new equipment for lab-based research. The membership requirement for being eligible to apply is reduced to 1 year.
Deadline: 30 Novembre 2021

EAVP2021, Online, Europe. 6-9 JULY 2021
Dear colleagues and friends,
Unfortunatelly, we must postpone (again, sigh) the on-site Benevento event to 2022, as we all hope to be able to travel freely across Europe by then.
However, because we all miss our meeting, the 18th EAVP meeting will be online, from 6th to 9th July 2021, co-organised by several European institutions (Università di Firenze, Università del Sannio, Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin).
NEXT DEADLINE: Workshop/symposia/roundtable proposal – 28.02.21
You can find the new first circular here or in the dedicated website: https://sites.google.com/view/eavp2021. For further information you can contact the organising committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
“This is the European Association of Vertebrate Palaeontologists. Dear members, please listen closely: racists, fascists and conspiracy theorists are NOT welcome in our association! Let us stand together for Europe and a world in peace. We as scientists have a political mandate, and we should be ready to act. All those who are not willing to accept this are free to leave.”
We would like to encourage other associations of the scientific community to join in with a similarly clear statement.
“In order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance” (Karl Popper).

EAVP 2020 postponed to 2021
Dear friends and colleagues,
It’s with great sorrow that we announce that the 2020 EAVP meeting in Benevento is postponed to summer 2021. As you may have noticed we have delayed the registration, hoping to avoid such drastic measure, but this unprecedented pandemic situation and the unpredictable developments, especially in terms of quarantine and travel restrictions, forces us, in agreement with the EAVP board, to postpone the meeting to the next year.
Benevento is happy to welcome you all for the 2021 conference, where we’ll hopefully have a lot of time to share our knowledge and socialize!
Stay safe, healthy and palaeo
