Early Career Researchers at IUGG '23

The International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) recognises the Early Career Scientists (ECS) upper limit as people who completed their PhD 10 years back. For all the ECS, there was a registered social event that took place at the IUGG General Assembly in Berlin on 15th July 2023. It was the first of its kind event with participation from all the 8 associations of IUGG working on different sciences. 

The ECS social evening was attended by more than 200 people spread across all the associations. After a long break from online conferences due to the pandemic, everybody was quite happy to interact face-to-face. Scientists early in their career got the chance to meet and interact with other scientists working on a different domain in a different country. The highlight of the event was a set of 10 questions related to their fears and academic lives that was to be discussed in a panel session the next day. Some pertinent questions were raised in hopes of the associations recognising and solving these problems. The attendees also had the opportunity to give suggestions and ask questions to IUGG.

The next day, at the Big Themes panel discussion, each of the association had a representative who tried to answer the poll results and raise the awareness and concerns of their association to IUGG. It was an hour long open discussion which was attended by both ECRs and established scientists.

This event was the starting point of a hopeful long association between IUGG and its ECR's needs, wishes and demands. Hopefully, in 4 years, in the next IUGG Assembly in Incheon, Korea, some of these problems will no longer exist or will be partially solved.

The conference, from 11th to 20th July 2023, has 3 public days where interested people are welcome to know more about trending research and innovations in geoscience. 

On 14th, 15th and 16th July, everyone can attend the exhibition hall B for free and interact with researchers about current geoscience inventions. Special highlights include the GFZ stand as well as the NASA exhibition. The local planetarium will also be present.

You can indicate your interest by answering three questions here.

More about other exhibitions can be found here. You can also look at the list of sponsors and exhibitors that will be present at IUGG. See you in a week at the conference!
