Geoscience for Society Challenge


The European Federation of Geologists (EFG) is glad to propose to the participants of the first season of EFG’s mentoring programme an opportunity for a face-to-face meeting. To benefit from this opportunity, mentees shall submit a joint application together with their mentor.

The winner of this Challenge will receive an invitation to attend a dinner debate in Brussels on the evening of 26 September 2018. The travel expenses and accommodation of the winning mentoring couple will be covered by EFG. The dinner debate will be co-hosted by EFG and the EGU (European Geosciences Union) and will focus on geoscience related aspects within the upcoming Horizon Europe research funding programme. The dinner debate will be attended by members of the EU Commission and of the EU Parliament, the EFG and the EGU Board, as well as selected leaders within geoscience-related industries.

This initiative will allow one of this year’s mentoring couples to meet face-to-face and to foster their cooperation. It will also offer the opportunity for both mentee and mentor to network with other participants, gain a better understanding of the European policy setting and learn about how geoscientists can help support Europe’s policy and needs.
