Happy holidays from the EGU office! Last month, EGU members elected the new EGU president, general secretary and division presidents. You can find out who won the election on the EGU website. Congratulations to all!

We have also launched a call for proposals for EGU members interested in organising Galileo conferences: apply by 28 February to receive up to 8000 EUR in financial support from the EGU.

Follow the links below for more news, including several updates and information regarding the EGU General Assembly. Remember, the deadline for abstracts is 10 January. Before then, consider supporting EGU activities by renewing your EGU membership. Members receive substantially reduced registration rates to the General Assembly, among other benefits.
