Division on Planetary and Solar System Sciences

President: Stephanie C. Werner (ps@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Özgür Karatekin (ozgur.karatekin@oma.be)

The aim of the Planetary & Solar System Sciences Division of the EGU is the promotion of all fields of planetary sciences, ground-based and space mission exploration of the solar system and beyond,  and related models. PS covers papers on both fundamental and applied topics regarding the exploration of the Solar System. The Division, devoted to Science applications in Space, hosts interdisciplinary contributions on the origins and the evolution of the Solar System and the exoplanetary Systems, as well as ideas for future exploration while largely contributing to outreach and educational activities for all audiences.

Workshop for early career scientists!

In the framework of a two days workshop entitled "Space Exploration - Pushing the Frontiers", we will create an exhibition on planetary exploration. The exhibition will travel with the participants to be shown at their university/institution. In groups, we will develop different stations of the exhibition concerning the different planetary bodies, the according space missions, the future plans etc. We imagine the exhibition consisting of posters, videos, multimedia and texts, but there is no limit to the creativity of the participants. Share your knowledge in your area of expertise with other young space scientists, and with laymen, children and colleagues.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

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.
