    The International Geological Congress (IGC) is delighted to announce the 36th International Geological Congress, which will be hosted in the exotic New Delhi, from 2-8 March 2020. The main aim of the event is to create a thoughtful environment for sharing geological knowledge with the main academics, organisations, partners and researchers coming from all over the world as well as those stakeholders who eager to learn more or possessing an expertise or deep interest for earth sciences, geology and the mineral sector.

    The vast Indian-subcontinent is a land rich of natural resources and can provide a full range of geological episodes, from precious and rare minerals to extensive rivers and active volcanoes, offering its visitors a deep and varied historical and cultural heritage. As such, India has actively contributed in several areas of the scientific sector and in research over the years.

    Each of these aspects make the upcoming IGC Congress a not-to-be-missed opportunity for those who want to enhance their geoscientific knowledge.

    For more information about the congress, the registration process and the details about the venue, please check the dedicated website of the event.

    The 11th International Brown Coal Mining Congress under the theme “BROWN COAL – ALTERNATIVE DIRECTIONS OF APPLICATION” will be held in Poland, Bełchatów from 20 to 22 April 2020.

    Please, confirm your attendance to the congress by submitting your participation. The attendees are also invited to prepare and write a scientific paper of their authorship that will be published in the COLLECTION SCIENTIFIC PAPERS and will be posted on the Congress website.

    The International Brown Coal Mining Congress is a regular event organized every two years. In 2020, the eleventh edition of the Congress will be celebrated. The organizers of the Congress are:

    1. PGE Górnictwo i Energetyka Konwencjonalna Joint-stock company.
    2. PGE Górnictwo i Energetyka Konwencjonalna Oddział Kopalnia Węgla Brunatnego Bełchatów (Bełchatów Lignite Mine Division).
    3. Stowarzyszenie Inżynierów i Techników Górnictwa, Oddział w Bełchatowie (Board of the Association of Mining Engineers and Technicians, Bełchatów Branch Office)

    The International Brown Coal Mining Congress is one of the largest events in Poland dedicated to the mining industry, in which scientists from many universities, research centers, institutes, company heads related to the mining and power industry, economists and representatives of banks and insurance companies take part.

    People of science, specialists and people directly related to the mining and energy industries take up issues important for the economy, related to the future of brown coal, which is a very important element stabilizing Poland's energy security. During the next year's meeting, we would like to draw attention to alternative directions for using this precious resource for the economy. We wish to focus on directions and technologies based on brown coal, such as obtaining semi-coke, low-temperature tar, industrial gases, liquid fuels or montan wax.

    From the first edition, the Honorary Patronage over the Congresses  has been taken by the Prime Ministers and Deputy Prime Ministers of the Government. It has almost become a tradition and gives special significance to this event.

    We intend to include some of the following issues in the subject scope of the Congress:

    1. The role of lignite in European countries and worldwide.
    2. Challenges facing the lignite industry in the context of the decarbonisation of the power industry.
    3. New lignite-based areas and technologies.
    4. Lignite as an alternative for other energy media.
    5. Gasification of coal.
    6. Changes in global lignite production and utilization trends.
    7. Poland’s energy mix until the year 2050.
    8. Lignite resources as a guarantee of energy security.
    9. The role of lignite in balancing and stabilising energy systems.
    10. Open-cast lignite mining – a time-intensive investments in new deposits and mining fields and many others.

    Last Congress debates and presentation sessions were participated by 340 people, including 47 from abroad The Congress was accompanied by an exhibition at which 58 exhibitors presented their products, achievements and technologies.

    For detailed information about the congress, please relate to the following documents:

    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 Genevaon 20-24 April 2020 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 soon. 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 General Assembly 2020 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) will be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 3–8 May 2020. 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.

    The GeoERA project will be having a session at the EGU Conference. 

    • ERE1.2 GeoERA: Towards integrated European geoscience services for today’s and future generations

    Europe is facing a number of societal challenges that are firmly linked to subsurface resources: groundwater, geo-energy and raw materials. Our society needs economic wealth and the use of resources is fundamental to this, while at the same time a healthy and secure environment for all citizens needs to be ensured. The growing population and the demographic change add to the pressure on surface and subsurface resources and uses. Moreover, the industrial transformation envisaged by the EU will increase the need for coordinated subsurface research and innovation underpinned by reliable and easy access to subsurface data.
    In order to support such transition, integrated European subsurface knowledge, development and sharing of improved processes and the use of new innovative technologies throughout the value chain will be essential. The Geological Survey Organisations of 32 countries within Europe laid the cornerstone to this achievement by establishing the GeoERA Programme. GeoERA’s main objectives to contribute to the more integrated and efficient management and more responsible exploitation and use of the subsurface are in line with several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

    This session will address integrated European geoscience services that will provide advice and data to Europe towards a sustainable subsurface management, integrating geo-resources (energy, water, raw materials) and environmental conditions (energy storage, natural hazards, anthropogenic impacts, biodiversity, climate change mitigation and adaptation), supported by a cross-thematic online information platform.

    The call for abstracts is already open and the submission deadline is 15 January 2020, 13:00 CET.

    For more information about the abstract submission click here.

    The date of the session has not been established yet but more information will follow soon. The meeting programme will be available on 4 March 2020.
