Division on Geosciences Instrumentation and Data Systems

President: Lara Pajewski (gi@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Francesco Soldovieri (soldovieri.f@irea.cnr.it)

Opposed to other divisions concentrating on specific fields of geosciences, this division intends to be a forum for developments in instrumentation, technology, methods and data handling used in any field of the various geosciences. By promoting the discussion between specialists from widely diverse fields, advances in instrumentation made in one field might be utilized in other areas also and encourage co-operation, thereby saving separate development work and making new approaches possible, which otherwise might still have to wait for years or even decades.

As nearly every other field of geosciences is related to one or the other instrumentation strategy, many of the GI-sessions are co-organized with sessions from other divisions. Potential contributors to any session are encouraged to evaluate the benefits of a multi-disciplinary discussion versus the specific interest of the own target group.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

This month the EGU held its first science-policy pairing scheme, during which a Union member provided scientific testimony and worked alongside a Member of the European Parliament for two days in Brussels. We also published a new policy report summarising the key outcomes from EGU's 2019 science policy event, Shaping EU Missions: bridging the gap between geoscience and policy, held in Brussels in October.

In other news, we have opened the call for applications for EGU Public Engagement Grants (due 15 February 2020) and for EGU Galileo Conference proposals (due 29 February 2020). We also announced a job vacancy at the Union office for a Chief Strategy & Finance Officer. The deadline for applications is 8 January 2020.

If you’d like to apply for funding to support travel to the General Assembly next year, please submit your conference abstract by 1 December 2019.
