Mission of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee:

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are the foundations of a strong and thriving scientific community. The vision of the European Association of Geochemistry’s DEI Committee is to unite the membership in collective efforts to challenge the status quo, transform community culture, and address system-wide and structural barriers to participation in geochemistry and cosmochemistry.

To realise this vision, our mission is to promote DEI initiatives that cultivate welcoming, kind, inspiring, and actively anti-discriminatory scientific cultures as well as safe, healthy, and supportive working environments. As such, the EAG DEI initiative shall serve as a model for STEM in optimising participation of historically excluded and underrepresented peoples across all sectors, levels of employ, and positions of community leadership.

About the H.C. Urey Award

The H.C. Urey Award is presented annually, at the Goldschmidt conference, for outstanding contributions advancing geochemistry over a career.

It is named in honor of Harold Clayton Urey, an American physical chemist whose pioneering work on isotopes earned him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1934 and later led him to theories of planetary evolution.

The H.C. Urey Award Committee is chaired by the EAG Vice-President.

About the Science Innnovation Award

The Science Innnovation Award is bestowed annually to a scientist within 30 years from the start of PhD, which must be completed. Eligibility is determined by the status of the candidate at the close of the year in which nominations are received and not the year the award is presented; hence, for the 2022 Science Innovation Award, candidates should have started their PhD in 1991 at the earliest.

The 2022 Science Innovation Award has been named in honor of Heinz Lowenstam for his work in biogeochemistry.

The subject area differs from year to year therefore the Science Innovation Award Committee is renewed every year.
