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.

Important dates

  • Abstract submission:  13 Oct 2017–10 Jan 2018, 13:00 CET
  • Support application: 13 Oct–01 Dec 2017



ENVRIplus / ENVRI community activities

ENVRI community booth

community-copy20 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 community can learn more about the Environmental and Earth system Research Infrastructures. The Research Infrastructures will present themselves and their services through the talks organized around the grand challenges. The final list of grand challenges, and most importantly, the booth agenda will be available on this page closer to the EGU.

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.
