EU-WATERRES team heading to one of the largest conferences for geoscientists in Europe: EGU2023

Mar 8, 2023

Why are we going there?

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly is an annual conference held in Vienna, Austria, that brings together thousands of geoscientists from all over the world. The conference covers a broad range of topics in Earth, planetary, and space sciences, including climate, oceanography, seismology, volcanology, and geomorphology. However, it is also a significant event for experts in water and groundwater, who attend to present their latest research on hydrological processes, water quality, and other related topics. The conference offers numerous opportunities for attendees to present their work, attend talks and posters, network with other researchers, and participate in workshops, short courses, and special sessions. The EGU General Assembly is one of the largest and most prominent geoscience conferences in Europe, attracting experts from various fields to share their knowledge and insights.

What insights will we bring there?

EU-WATERRES team will be represented by eight project members from Latvia, Estonia and Norway and seven diverse collaboration outcomes in form of 3 oral talks and 4 poster presentations.
