This month, the EGU has named the 47 recipients of next year’s Union Medals and Awards, Division Medals, and Division Outstanding Early Career Scientists Awards. We have also opened the call for proposals for meetings co-sponsored by the EGU. If you'd like to organise a topical meeting, training school or workshop next year, please apply for funding by 31 December. In other EGU news, EGU members still have a few more days to vote in the EGU 2016 Autumn elections for treasurer and division presidents. You can see who the candidates are and how you can vote on the EGU website.
