IIASA researchers will participate in the European Geosciences Union (EGU) 2022 conference presenting research on climate change, risk and resilience, energy, citizen science, and more.
The EGU General Assembly 2022 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world for one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career scientists, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
In 2022, the EGU aims to provide an on-site experience for those attending in-person, while at the same time introducing new concepts to include virtual attendees as much as possible. EGU 2022 will be a conference with a virtual component where everybody is welcome, in-person or online!
To arrange interviews with IIASA researchers please contact the IIASA Press Office.
Please visit the EGU Program page for the full program.
Registration for EGU22 is now open and is available for on-site or virtual participation.
The deadline for registration is: 14 April 2022, 13:00 CEST
