Time for submissions: sessions proposed by NhET at the next EGU General Assembly!

We are getting closer to 2020 and one of the first deadlines is for the submission of abstracts for the next EGU General Assembly (GA) in Wien, from the 3rd to the 8th of May 2020. The Natural hazards Early career scientist Team (NhET) has proposed several sessions and short courses also for next GA. Below you can find a list of them.


We also remind that there is an opportunity for financial support to attend EGU for both Early Career and Established Scientists. The deadline to apply and submit the abstract is the 1st of December and more information can be found on the dedicated section of the website of EGU2020.



Remember: you can submit an abstract to a session until the 15th of January 2019, 13:00 CET. And don’t forget the One-Abstract Rule, what does it mean? “Authors are allowed as first author to submit either one regular abstract plus one abstract solicited by a convener, or two solicited abstracts. A second regular abstract can be submitted to the Education and Outreach Sessions (EOS) programme group (the maximum number of abstracts, including solicited abstracts, remains two)”. You can submit following the links of each session below.

Abstract submission



Short courses are open to everyone, but we invite you to pre-register in order to help to organize the course in the best way (not mandatory). You can find pre-registration forms in the courses’ description.


SC4.7 – Speed-dating: Research-match making (Co-organized by NH11)

Convener: Luigi Lombardo | Co-conveners: Francisco Cáceres, Giulia Roder



This year there will be also a Union Symposium organized by NhET: we hope you will have the possibility to attend to it, more information will come soon about the speakers.

US2 – Geosciences and UN Sustainable Development Goals: pathways for the future

Convener: Jonathan Rizzi | Co-conveners: Nilay Dogulu, Gabriela Guimarães Nobre, Chiara Marchina, Giulia Roder

In addition to the above-mentioned sessions, we invite you to have a look at the wider and very interesting program of the Natural Hazard Division as a whole and to stay tuned for later information about Early Career Scientists’ ad hoc events that will take place during the GA.

I have a bachelor in GIS and Remote Sensing and a master and a PhD in Environmental Sciences. Since several years, I work in the field of Climate Change and Risk assessment. I worked with the University of Venice and the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change, while travelling across the world, from China to Ecuador. For three years, I have been working in Norway, first as postdoc at the University of Oslo, and now as researcher at the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research. My research focus is now mainly on climate change and forestry. I think that one of the most positive aspect of being a researcher is meet and cooperate with many people; therefore, I strongly believe networking initiatives are particularly useful. I am one of the founder of NhET and I think the Blog will be a great channel to engage more ECS - and more experienced researcher as well - working on Natural Hazard.
