This month the EGU has opened a call for financial support for training schools in the Earth, planetary or space sciences scheduled for 2019. We also welcome proposals for conferences on solar system and planetary processes, as well as on biochemical processes in the Earth system, in line with two new conference series we are launching that are named after two female scientists.

Also this month, we have opened the EGU 2019 General Assembly call for sessions, with 6 September as a deadline for scientific sessions, short courses and townhall meetings. The deadline to submit proposals for Union Symposia and Great Debates is 15 August. Last but not the least, we are pleased to announced we have raised 17,000 EUR for a carbon offsetting scheme, thanks to 2018 General Assembly participants.
