European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2017

Through our industry involvement in the NextGEOSS project (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) the IEA will be presenting at EGU 2017. We will be taking part in one of NextGEOSS’s first public events – a splinter meeting at 10.30am on Thursday, April 27th – as well as a poster session on Monday, April 24th, 5.30-7pm.  The presentations will promote a training session on user feedback to be held at the University of Reading on September 13th, 2017.

The IEA’s role in NextGEOSS is speaking to application developers in industry, as well as academia, to ensure their data needs are addressed in the next generation of GEOSS Earth Observation.

The IEA will also be heading the Belmont Forum’s evening town hall meeting on Open Data and digital skills at EGU on Thursday, April 27th.  In a side meeting to EGU, there will be a workshop on developing curricula for digital skills necessary for data intensive global change research.

EGU is the largest geosciences meeting in the world, providing an opportunity to learn about new developments and find out about the latest discoveries in  areas, such as climate, space and planetary science missions, natural disasters, and seafloor exploration. Geoscientists from all over the globe will be presenting their work and discussing ideas. It covers all disciplines of Earth, planetary and space sciences. Topics for debate will include ‘Arctic environmental change: global opportunities and threats’, ‘Is 2oC possible without relying on carbon storage and capture?’, and a session on ‘Make Facts Great Again: how can scientists stand up for science?’. Our Training & Development Manager, Vicky Lucas, will be representing the IEA.
