Science without borders
14,000+ researchers from 116 countries gathered on-site and online for Europe’s largest Geoscience event
After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, EGU’s annual General Assembly EGU22 returned to Vienna, Austria, and an in-person format, while retaining its online component to make the scientific conference as accessible as possible – for researchers, scientists, and journalists across the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Over 14,000 attendees from 116 countries discussed and shared the latest in geoscience research throughout the week-long conference from 23 – 27 May 2022. EGU thanks all attendees for their support and enthusiastic participation at the Union’s first ever hybrid conference.
This month we also spoke to Jenny Turton, the incoming Union-level Representative for Early Career Scientists (ECS). Jenny is a postdoc researcher working on atmospheric modelling and meteorological observations, focusing on atmospheric processes that affect the ice. Find out more in this month’s Geo Talk blog.
