The EGU General Assembly is a prominent annual event that brings together geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early-career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

The annual EGU General Assembly is Europe’s largest and most prominent geosciences event. It attracts more than 16,000 scientists, more than half of which are early career, from all over the world.

The meeting’s sessions cover all disciplines in the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Each annual General Assembly typically features more than 16,000 oral, poster and PICOs (interactive presentations that combine the advantages of orals and posters).

Aside from the disciplinary sessions, which cover topics selected by each scientific division (or programme group), the meeting also features many Union-wide sessions. These include Great Debates and Union Symposia, inter- and transdisciplinary sessions, medal lectures, short courses, and Education and Outreach Sessions (such as the Geosciences Information For Teachers workshop, GIFT).

The General Assembly also features a job centre, artists-in-residence, and a newsletter, EGU Today, which highlights sessions, events, and exhibitions each day of the meeting. These and other activities, as well as the scientific sessions, are often announced on GeoLog, the EGU blog, as well as EGU’s social media channels, which are very popular during the Assembly.

Other features of the Assembly include a daily newsletter, EGU Today, which highlights sessions and events each day of the meeting and exhibitions. These and other activities, as well as the scientific sessions, are often highlighted on GeoLog, the EGU blog, and EGU social media channels, which see keen presence during the Assembly.

The EGU also hosts journalists and organises press conferences in a dedicated Press Centre at the meeting.


The EGU is Europe’s premier geosciences union, dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the Earth, planetary, and space sciences for the benefit of humanity, worldwide. It was established in September 2002 as a merger of the European Geophysical Society (EGS) and the European Union of Geosciences (EUG), and has headquarters in Munich, Germany.
