Happy holidays from the EGU office! This month we are happy to announce a new addition to the EGU awards and medals
portfolio. The Katia and Maurice Krafft Award honours researchers who
have shown exceptional efforts in geoscience communication and outreach.
Submissions for this and other EGU 2020 awards and medals will be accepted
from January until 15 June 2019.
This month we also announced that EGU is contributing EUR 132,000 to help fund over 20 training schools and
conferences in 2019, including two Galileo Conferences. We have also
launched a call for proposals for EGU members interested in organising
Galileo Conferences from March 2020 to February 2021. Apply by 28 February 2019 to receive up to
EUR 8000 in financial support, as well as significant organisational
support, from the EGU.

General Assembly. Remember, the deadline

European geosciences union. EGU members are eligible to submit
an abstract to the General Assembly and enjoy substantially reduced meeting
registration rates, among other benefits.
