EGU science-policy events

The EGU hosts science-policy events in Brussels to discuss issues and topics that are important to the geoscience community and facilitate collaboration between geoscientists and policymakers.

These events give EGU members an opportunity to share their expertise with policymakers in an informal setting while simultaneously providing them with insights into the policymaking process. EGU’s science-policy events aim to promote greater collaboration between the geoscientific community and policymakers, highlight policy-relevant outputs from EGU scientists and support evidence-based policy.

The themes of EGU’s science-policy events are selected based on their significance to the geoscience community as a whole and their relevance to Europe’s current policy issues. EGU endeavours to have diverse participation at each science-policy event with an equal number of policymakers and scientists targeted, one scientist from almost all EGU divisions invited and gender balance considered. The Early Career Scientist (ECS) Policy Competition held prior to each science-policy event provides ECS with the opportunity and funding to attend, ensuring that multiple career-levels are represented.

Below you will find the EGU’s past and future science-policy events. If you require any further information regarding these events or have an interest in attending one, please contact the EGU Policy Officer Chloe Hill via policy@egu.eu.
