EGU22: registration fees announcement

25 November 2021

The EGU General Assembly 2022, taking place on 3-8 April, will bring together geoscientists from all over the world for one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a safe forum where scientists, especially early career scientists, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. As we continue to work on the new hybrid format for the General Assembly, which will take place both in Vienna (Austria) and online, we wanted to provide information to members about the types of registration fees available, to give you the most choice in planning for EGU22.

As there will be several changes to the General Assembly structure next year, participants in EGU22 will notice an increase in registration fees from previous years. These necessary changes will focus on providing the maximum safety and security during the ongoing pandemic; as well as the structural and technological changes needed for this first stage of the hybridisation of the General Assembly.

“It is always a difficult decision to raise the registration fees for our annual General Assembly” EGU Programme Committee Chair Peter van der Beek said “but we cannot avoid the increased costs of offering a new hybrid format. In addition, we are not willing to compromise on the COVID-19 health and safety measures needed to protect our community, as the wellbeing of EGU22 participants is our highest priority. We do, however, acknowledge the challenge that these higher fees will present to many of our attendees, so we have introduced a range of discounts and fee waivers that we hope will provide greater access to many who require financial support.”

There will be two ways that EGU22 participants can register: for on-site (in-person) attendance and online (virtual) attendance. On-site attendance registration can be paid for with a credit card or bank transfer and is processed using Austrian VAT of 20%. Online attendance registration is processed differently depending on your country of residence (due to EU law). Further details are available on the EGU22 website. This flexible choice of attendance types should provide participants with the ability to choose the type of participation they feel most comfortable with.
