Some general tips

  • Take time to plan your week schedule ahead!
  • Don’t forget to take some breaks and also enjoy Vienna or the beautiful park around the conference centre
  • Don’t be afraid to check out topics outside your expertise, you might be surprised what you can find
  • Bring a water bottle, coffee/tea mug and an old lanyard if you have one! There will be water fountains to refill your bottle!
  • Don’t forget to pay a visit to the exhibitors, they do not only have nice goodies, but can be very inspiring resources for your future career.
  • Check out the morning EGU today news for daily highlights (available through the EGU24 app).
  • Psst, in case you missed it in the last EGU update: “The Naturhistorisches Museum Wien, the natural history museum in Vienna, is offering a 50% discount to everyone with an EGU24 name badge!” – don’t miss this opportunity!
