News from the EAG
The EAG Council would like to welcome Liane G. Benning, University of Leeds and German Research Center for Geosciences, as the new EAG President. Liane has been involved with the society for over six years, first serving in the council as Chair of the Communications Committee, Secretary then Vice-President and lately as founding editor of Geochemical Perspectives and Geochemical Perspectives Letters. Liane’s energy and dedication to the society have been fundamental to the growth of the EAG.
Following elections in October, EAG is pleased to announce that Sigurður Reynir Gíslason (University of Iceland), Andreas Pack (University of Göttingen) and Dominik Weiss (Imperial College London) were elected and will join the council in 2015. Furthermore the council has also elected Bernard Marty as Vice-President, Antje Boetius as a new Goldschmidt Officer and Stefanie Lutz as the first Early Career Councillor. A very warm welcome to all!
To promote Early Career Scientists, EAG creates the Early Career Science Ambassador Program. Early Career Scientists based in Europe, in the final stages of their PhD or within 6 years post PhD, wishing to attend conferences outside of Europe will have 50% of their expenses covered by EAG, up to 2000 Euros, and be viewed as EAG Ambassadors while attending the event.

As EAG aims to support students training in geochemistry, on years when the Goldschmidt conference is not in Europe (i.e. on even years), EAG will sponsor 20 students up to 200 Euros per student, to attend short courses, summer schools, workshops or conferences located in Europe and related to geochemistry.
