EGU Newsletter: Monthly information service for members of the European Geosciences Union

Mountain Wave Clouds over Torres del Paine, by Jonathan Zawislak. Find geoscience images (and upload yours!) at


This month the EGU held its first science-policy pairing scheme, during which a Union member provided scientific testimony and worked alongside a Member of the European Parliament for two days in Brussels. We also published a new policy report summarising the key outcomes from EGU's 2019 science policy event, Shaping EU Missions: bridging the gap between geoscience and policy, held in Brussels in October.

In other news, we have opened the call for applications for EGU Public Engagement Grants (due 15 February 2020) and for EGU Galileo Conference proposals (due 29 February 2020). We also announced a job vacancy at the Union office for a Chief Strategy & Finance Officer. The deadline for applications is 8 January 2020.

If you’d like to apply for funding to support travel to the General Assembly next year, please submit your conference abstract by 1 December 2019.
