EGU Members: have your say on the direction of the Union

EGU Members: have your say on the direction of the Union

The EGU is a member-led organisation with around 20,000 members from all over the world. To promote the Earth, planetary and space sciences, the EGU conducts many activities ranging from publishing open access journals and hosting geoscientific meetings to organising education and outreach initiatives.

As EGU’s representatives and staff members, we work hard throughout the year to ensure the Union is serving its members, and we need your input to continue to do so. That’s why we’ve designed a short EGU member survey to give you the chance to voice what you value about the EGU and what you would like the Union to accomplish in the future.

If you are an EGU member, we ask that you take 5-10 minutes to give feedback on the EGU and its activities. The deadline to complete this survey is 15 November 2019. We are grateful for the nearly 2,000 members who have already responded with their views.

How to provide your input

You can find our survey online through this link: https://survey.zohopublic.eu/zs/LTBB60

The survey first aims to get a better picture of who you are. We’d like to know who comprises the EGU membership, which scientific disciplines and career stages are represented, and where our members are based.

The second part of the survey aims to learn more about what EGU initiatives you are already aware of, what resources you value the most, and what activities you think should be improved or expanded.

Through this survey we also want to know more about why you’re an EGU member, how a Union membership supports your professional career, and what’s the one thing EGU can do to most benefit you—and the geosciences.

This survey is the biggest and best opportunity for you and the greater EGU community to help steer the Union’s course, and the results will help ensure that we remain responsive to what you want. Thank you in advance for helping shape EGU’s future! Please share this survey widely within your own professional network.

 

Registration for the EGU 2015 General Assembly is open!

The EGU General Assembly brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting that covers all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Following from last year’s success, the EGU General Assembly will have a theme: A Voyage Through Scales. The theme is an invitation to contemplate Earth’s extraordinary variability extending from milliseconds to its age and from microns to the size of the planet. The theme does not constrain the topics to be presented at the Assembly; rather, it will add to the conference experience.

EGU 2015 will be held in Vienna from 12- 17 April 2015, where established scientists and early career researchers alike will be able to present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of the geosciences.

Early registration for the conference is open until 12 March 2015 – you can register online on the General Assembly website. Note that EGU members benefit from reduced member rates; to become a member, go to www.egu.eu/membership/, where you can both become a new member, or renew your EGU membership.

Registration for the EGU 2014 General Assembly is open!

The EGU General Assembly brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting that covers all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. This year, the conference will have a theme: The Face of the Earth. Much like a human face, our planet exhibits a huge diversity of shapes and forms. This theme aims to celebrate that diversity in geoscience processes – from the core of the Earth to interplanetary space.

EGU 2014 will be held in Vienna from 27 April – 2 May 2014, where established scientists and early career researchers alike will be able to present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of the geosciences.

Early registration for the conference is open until 31 March 2014 – you can register online on the General Assembly website. Note that EGU members benefit from reduced member rates; to become a member, go to www.egu.eu/membership/, where you can both become a new member, or renew your EGU membership.
