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
With the EGU General Assembly just over a week away, we have a number of updates on the meeting, happening in Vienna from 7–12 April. We have announced that Former Italian Prime Minister and European Commissioner Mario Monti and Former Italian Parliamentarian Ilaria Capua will be at the EGU meeting, participating in a conversation with geoscientists on ‘Science, Politics and European (dis)integration’. We have also recently announced a number of measures to reduce the environmental impact of the conference: we encourage all participants to offset their carbon footprint from travelling to Vienna and to bring their own coffee cup and water bottle to the meeting, to reduce the number of disposable items used. Follow the links under the ‘General Assembly’ section below for more information about the EGU meeting.
This month, we have also announced that we are accepting nominations for EGU awards and medals. We encourage the EGU membership to consider gender, geographical and cultural balance when nominating outstanding Earth, planetary and space scientists at various career stages.
Stay tuned to https://www.egu.eu next week for an announcement about a new EGU journal!
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).
