Welcome to EFG

The European Federation of Geologists (EFG) is a non-governmental organisation that was established in 1980 and includes today 26 national association members.

EFG is a professional organisation whose main aims are to contribute to a safer and more sustainable use of the natural environment, to protect and inform the public and to promote a more responsible exploitation of natural resources.

EFG’s members are National Associations, NAs, whose principal objectives are based in similar aims. The guidelines to achieve these aims are the promotion of excellence in the application of geology and the creation of public awareness of the importance of geoscience for the society.

“EFG: a Federation working for You”: the video to discover EFG, its members, missions and actions. The way to meet the members of our growing European Family.

27 National Associations representing more than 45000 geoscientists across Europe
