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
As part of EGU’s Mineral Month, the September 2020 newsletter commemorates Friedrich Mohs, a German geologist who invented the Mohs Hardness Scale, thereby changing the way people study minerals to this very day. This issue also announces the upcoming EGU-European Parliament Intergroup virtual science-policy event, which will bring together geoscientists, policymakers, and industry representatives on 30 September to discuss how Earth, planetary, and space science researchers can support the European Green Deal.
Other upcoming events include the next EGU webinar on European Research Council grants, to be held on 19 October, and the annual EGU plenary meeting, which will be held virtually on 22 October.
The Loupe also features the latest EGU blogs, science policy news, and a call for new members of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Working Group. Be sure to apply by 21 October!
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).
