The EAG Short Course and Conference Sponsorship Program is open to EAG members who are organizing a short course or small conference in Europe focused on special topics or techniques from the broad field of geochemistry. The program aims to directly support student attendance at the event.
The EAG provides a budget of 3,000 Euros for this program. One or several events may be sponsored each year.
Apply for sponsorship
If you are an EAG member and are organizing a short course or small conference in Europe in 2023, you can apply for EAG sponsorship. Short courses or small conferences should have at least 10 participants and focus on special topics or techniques from the broad field of geochemistry. The short courses or small conferences should be based in Europe. The event can be organized in conjunction with a Goldschmidt conference in Europe. Please note we will not prioritize EU or national funded events.
Following the short course or small conference, sponsored students may be requested to produce a one-page report on their experience. Some of those reports will be published on the EAG Blog.
For events taking place in 2023, the application deadline is 30 November 2022.
Applications for online as well as hybrid and in-person events will be considered.
In 2022, the EAG is proud to be co-sponsoring:
Zurich, Switzerland – 24-29 July 2022
The 12th Geochemistry of the Earth’s Surface Symposium (GES12) has a strong focus on interactions of the Earth’s spheres: the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere, and how these interactions respond to changing environmental and climate conditions. The overarching theme of GES12 is Earth system interactions on a changing planet.
Zurich, Switzerland, at the central campus of ETH Zurich
EAG Student Support
We encourage talented students to participate to GES12 by applying for a European Association of Geochemistry (EAG) sponsored scholarship. Successful applicants will pay a reduced registration fee of CHF 100 (or CHF 70 for an early registration before May 1, 2022). We can offer this scholarship to five students. Application deadline: April 15, 2022. More information at https://ges12.com/eag-student-support/

About the Meeting
Forming and Exploring Habitable Worlds is a multi-discipline international scientific meeting taking place in Edinburgh, UK, 7-13 November 2022. This event will accommodate roughly 120 in-person delegates of all career stages based in a range of employment sectors. A hybrid model is envisioned to broaden attendance and accommodate virtual access for additional delegates.
- The origins of habitable bodies in and beyond our home Solar System
- Space exploration and its governance: priorities, visions, concerns, and ambitions

EAG co-sponsored event in 2022, originally scheduled for 2020:
Jerusalem, Israel – 19-22 September 2022
8th International Clumped Isotope Workshop (8th ICIW), will take place at Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel, 19-22 September 2022 (postponed from 2020).
Since 2010 the fast-growing community of scientists interested in clumped isotopes meet every ~1.5 years for a few days’ workshop, to discuss methodological development and inter-laboratory standardization, learn about exciting new applications, and share ideas. The workshops are structured around several sessions of lectures and posters, with a large portion of the time being devoted to formal and informal discussion.
