EGU Young Talents in Geosciences Programme
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is extending its programme for giving special recognition to young scientists who have shown significant achievements in any field of geosciences. Beginning with the annual EGU General Assembly 2005, EGU will organize a special "Union Symposium" within each EGU General Assembly, in which such talented young scientists are given a platform to report on their work and to meet established geoscientists.
All national scientific associations in Europe that bestow awards upon young scientists for their significant scientific achievements in any area of geosciences and planetary and space sciences covered by the EGU are invited to nominate their awardees by 31 December of each year for the next year's General Assembly.
Nominees will be granted free attendance to the EGU General Assembly and they will receive a travel grant of 500 Euro. Up to 20 minutes will be allocated for their presentation in the "Union Symposium" entitled "Young Talents in Geosciences Symposium". Thus besides recognizing young talents and introducing them to European geosciences, national prizes and medals will thereby achieve a European dimension.
Please, select the Home Site of the next EGU General Assembly, select "Support & Distinction" and then "Young Talents". Nominations for the next EGU General Assembly should be forwarded by completing the "Young Talents in Geosciences Nomination Form" and they should reach the EGU before 31 December. Nominations received later will be considered for the following EGU General Assembly.
