The EGU newsletter is a short email publication sent to EGU members on a monthly basis. It informs the Union membership about EGU events and activities, from highlighting papers published in our open access journals to providing news relating to EGU’s scientific divisions and meetings, including the General Assembly.
EGU members are given the option to subscribe to receive the Union’s email newsletter when buying their EGU membership. Other geoscientists, members of the wider public or the media can subscribe online.
If you are an EGU member subscribed to receive the newsletter (you can check this in your User Area) but have not received the emails, please let us know, and make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to prevent spam filters from blocking these emails.
Current issue of the EGU newsletter
This month, we have launched a short survey for EGU members to provide input on what they value from EGU, the results of which will help ensure that we remain responsive to what our members want. This is particularly important in a member-led organisation like the EGU. If you are an EGU member, we'd ask you to take 5-10 minutes to give feedback on EGU and its activities.
If you work on higher education teaching of geoscience, we would also like to hear from you on how we can best support your teaching activities. Find out more on the Education section of the EGU website.
In General Assembly related news, we have opened applications for the third edition of our Artists in Residence programme. The programme is most attractive for scientist-artists, especially those already familiar with, and interested in, the EGU General Assembly. Applications are accepted until 1 December.
Finally, a note from the EGU Executive Secretary Philippe Courtial: "After 8 successful years at the EGU office, EGU Media and Communications Manager Bárbara Ferreira has decided to give a new orientation to her career. We would like to thank her for her tireless efforts and we wish her all the best for her future career."
Readers can access all previous issues of the newsletter from the archive below. Up until the end of 2014, the newsletter was a quarterly magazine and information service (first called The Eggs and then GeoQ).
