Educators: apply now to take part in the 2015 GIFT workshop!

23 September 2014

The Geosciences Information For Teachers workshop is taking place on April 13–15 2015 at the EGU General Assembly in Vienna, Austria. The topic of the 2015 edition of GIFT is Mineral Resources. The workshop will explore one of the most important challenges faced by modern society: access to raw materials, including base and strategic minerals, in a rapidly developing and growing world.

Teachers from Europe and around the world can apply to participate in the 2015 edition of GIFT, and to receive a travel and accommodation stipend to attend the workshop, by November 28. Application information is available for download in PDF format, a document which also includes the preliminary programme of the workshop.


Information for young researchers working on mineral resources: the EGU young scientist representatives are currently looking for an early career researcher to speak at the GIFT workshop. If you are interested, please contact the Young Scientist Representative for the Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Petrology & Volcanology Division, Ioannis Baziotis, at .
