ENVRI community at EGU18

European Geosciences Union  General Assembly 2018 will be held in Vienna | Austria | 8–13 April 2018

The EGU General Assembly 2018 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

ENVRI community booth

20 Environmental Research Infrastructures decided to (again) join their forces, demonstrate their collaboration, pool the resources and increase their visibility by organizing a second joint ENVRI community booth. The booth will serve as a meeting point for the community, but also place where the science communi

ty can learn more about the Environmental and Earth system Research Infrastructures and the data they are providing. The Research Infrastructures will present themselves and their services through the talks organized around the grand challenges and others related Themes. The booth programme introducing the lunch-break talks can be found here

Meet us at the same exhibition location as last year (booths 2&3, right next to the entrance to EGU venue). Contact us for further questions or requests.
