News from the EAG
For the first time, EAG will have a booth (no 2722) at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. If you are attending, please come visit us to find out about our activities and latest initiatives, and pick up some goodies! Also, anyone becoming a member at AGU receives back issues of Geochemical Perspectives.
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 Antje Boetius as a new Goldschmidt Officer and Stefanie Lutz as the first Early Career Councillor. We would like to wish all our new councillors a very warm welcome!
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. Find out more.
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.
