In place of its annual General Assembly in Vienna, the European Geosciences Union (EGU) will instead host EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online from 4-8 May. This week-long series of virtual interactions offers geoscientists opportunities to share their research and stimulate scientific discourse during a period of unprecedented social isolation.

Sharing Geoscience Online is a pilot project with the potential to involve more than ten thousand scientists who specialize in Earth, planetary and space science research, along with policymakers, educators, journalists and anyone else interested in participating.

To arrange interviews with IIASA researchers please contact the IIASA Press Office

Below is a selection of IIASA related displays, oral, and short course. 

A full list of IIASA participation appears here, and please visit the EGU Program page for the full program.
