The deadline to nominate the best deserving researchers for the EGU 2020 awards and medals is this month, on the 15th of June. To increase diversity in the group of EGU awardees and medallists, we encourage the EGU membership to consider gender, geographical and cultural balance when nominating outstanding Earth, planetary and space scientists at various career stages. We also remind you that the EGU launched two exciting new awards this year, which we are also accepting nominations for: the Angela Croome Award for science journalists and Katia and Maurice Krafft Award for researchers for excellence in science outreach and engagement.

Another important date to keep in mind is 9 June, the deadline for submitting your feedback on the EGU General Assembly 2019. This is your chance to help us improve the 2020 meeting.

If you are looking to organise a geoscience school or conference, keep an eye on next week as we’ll be launching our call for applications for financial support from the EGU to organise topical events.
