    The General Assembly 2019 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) will be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 7–12 April 2019. It is the largest geosciences meeting in Europe, which brings together thousands of geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. It provides an opportunity for science communicators to talk to researchers, learn about new developments and find out about the latest discoveries in a variety of areas, such as climate, space and planetary science missions, natural disasters, and plastic pollution.

    EuroGeoSurveys will be having a booth and two abstracts were accepted at the EGU Conference.

    Unimpeded production and supply of energy and raw materials underpins the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Resource management experts, including representatives from government institutions, international organizations, industry, professional societies, associations, civil society and academia, will gather in Geneva to discuss the development and application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) and the United Nations Resource Management System (UNRMS). UNFC and UNRMS, which accommodate environmental and social considerations, provide a unique model for the sustainable management of renewable energy, mineral, petroleum, nuclear fuel and anthropogenic resources, as well as injection projects. Groundwater resources are now also being addressed.

    UNFC and UNRMS offer a framework for efficient policy formulation, national resource management, industrial processes innovation and capital allocation. The tenth annual session of the Expert Group on Resource Classification* will feature progress on development and implementation of UNFC and UNRMS, including:

    1. Concept and design of UNRMS
    2. Updates to UNFC
    3. Development of specifications for renewable energy, minerals and petroleum resources
    4. Case studies and application examples
    5. Progress on initiatives to adopt UNFC and UNRMS in Europe, Africa, Latin America, Eurasia and Asia-Pacific.

    The draft agenda and other documents for the meeting will be posted to the UNECE website over the coming weeks. Additional information regarding the Week, including how to register, or if you need a personalized letter of invitation and/or visa support letter, is provided below.

    The Raw Materials Summit, the flagship Event organised by the EIT RawMaterials, will take place on 20-22 May in Berlin, Germany.

    The summit will gather experts from Europe and the rest of the world to discuss Innovation and new Technologies covering the entire raw materials value chain. Most relevant topics in the raw materials sector will be addressed such as strategies concerning supply and access of raw materials, European industrial competitiveness and innovation capacity as well as entrepreneurship and innovation in education.

    The summit will provide all participants with a unique opportunity to understand the EU positioning concerning the energy transition and the impact this will have on raw materials supply and policies.

    The Raw Materials Summit 2019 will include keynotes by prominent speakers from the raw materials sector, representatives of the EU Commission, high profile entrepreneurs and startup investors. Besides the keynote speeches, a series of parallel sessions will take place.

    To continue the tradition of European workshops on 3D geological modelling that took place in the past years, the Swiss Geological Survey cordially invites you to join the community between May 21st  – 24th 2019 in Berne – Switzerland.

    The mistakes we make in the subsurface today can hardly be corrected in the future. The meeting is inspired by the emerging role of 3D geological modelling with respect to spatial planning in the underground. Besides the benefits of 3D geological modelling for society, the meeting shall also address case studies, advances in research and software development, trends, data dissemination, data infrastructure, application in resource management and demos related to the main topic. It focus on European GSOs, their needs, practical solutions and open knowledge exchange. However, exchange with academia and industry is much appreciated.

    We offer four conference blocks (slots for 30 talks of 15 min each, poster sessions and two break-out sessions), accompanied by two excursions and two social events - surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the city of Berne.

    Click here to check the attached First circular file for more detailed information. The call for abstracts will be sent out early next year.

    If you are interested in the meeting and plan to attend, we kindly ask you to pre-register (non-binding) in order to facilitate the planning of the meeting in the following link bit.ly/2EVaUVH

    In regard to the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) and its main objectives, EuroGeoSurveys and its GeoEnergy Expert Group (EGS GEEG) will support GeoPLASMA-CE's workshop for providing awareness about the main benefits of geology and geothermal energy and how these sectors can contribute to a more sustainable European economy and a zero carbon emission future.

    The upcoming zero-emission energy transition not only needs techno-scientific advancements but also cultural, social and political choices – A regime shift often calling for a public debate. The workshop therefore, aims to create awareness about the maturation of the geothermal energy and its value to usher a clean and sustainable energy future whilst highlighting the environmental, financial and technical challenges and associated advancements in tapping this natural resource. Recent developments in identification of these challenges and their solutions, undertaken in the framework of different European funded projects on geothermal energy, will be presented.

    In a wider perspective, EuroGeoSurveys and GeoPLASME-CE are committed to provide and share European web-based geoscientific data and knowledge for technical advice to the EU Institutions while asking for a solid and effective effort for integrating geoscientific-based data in the EU policy, leading to a more sustainable energy planning and energy future.

    From 20-22 September 2019, the European Minerals Day will welcome around 30.000 people from the neighbouring communities all over Europe for exploring the world of minerals while finding out what goes behind the gates of quarries, mines or plants in their vicinity.

    This year all the interested stakeholders will have the opportunity to discover the link between the minerals and the following sectors:

    - Innovation in the local economies: minerals are at the core of a material science industry, providing a significant number of jobs;

    - Importance of value chain: raw materials are linked to industries across all supply chain stages and provide for essential products of daily use;

    - Re-industrialisation agenda: raw materials are the backbone of all value chains, and therefore essentials for the European re-industrialisation process;

    - Enabler of carbon-neutral society: raw materials facilitate the transition to a zero carbon society in all the sectors of economy;

    - Embracing the idea of a circular economy: deploying minerals will have a favourable impact on the overall economy;

    - Biodiversity: the minerals sector helps to enhance biodiversity;

    - Resource efficiency: minerals companies sustainable manage resources all through the value chain.

    Who we are: A consortium of 12 European partners, representing aggregates, cement, gypsum, industrial minerals, metals, mineral exploration, mining and salt sectors, currently leads the EMD: IMA-Europe (Coordinator), CEMBUREAU, EIT RawMaterials, EuroGypsum, Eurométaux, Euromines, EuroGeoSurveys, the European Technology Platform on Sustainable Minerals Resources, EuSalt, UEPG, with the support of IndustriAll and the European Federation of Geologists.
