    The International Network of Raw Materials Training Centres (INTERMIN) Project is a European Union H2020 funded research project. The INTERMIN creates a self-sustainable long-term lasting global network of training centres for students and professionals in the primary and secondary raw materials sector. This project involves educational and research institutions in the EU and the leading counterparts in third countries. INTERMIN has identified the key knowledge gaps, emerging needs in education & training by establishing common training programmes in the raw materials sector, and has developed the roadmap for improving skills and knowledge.

    The INTERMIN Project will publicly present its final outputs and achievements of the last three years during the Online Final Conference that will take place on 22 June 2021 via the GoToMeeting platform organised by the Project Lead Partner, Geological Survey of Spain (IGME).

    The EPRM is a multi-stakeholder partnership working to increase the amount of responsibly produced minerals from areas that are affected by, or at high risk of, conflict. It is an accompanying measure to the EU Responsible Minerals Regulation, which calls on EU-based importers of gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten (3TGs) to demonstrate that they comply with international standards in responsible production and sourcing.

    During the conference, participants will hear how the EPRM is delivering on its mission by:

    • Catalysing collaborative action from governments, supply chain actors and civil society to create responsible mineral supply chains;
    • Supporting Artisanal and Small Scale miners to gain access to formal local and international markets;
    • Supporting companies to improve their due diligence practices through resources and capacity building;
    • Linking upstream and downstream towards meeting the due diligence requirements of the EU Responsible Minerals regulation

    The International Commission on the History of Geological Sciences (INHIGEO) promotes ongoing research into the history of the earth sciences.  It was founded in 1967 and currently has approx. 300 members from 57 countries.

    INHIGEO has been established by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) and is also affiliated with the International Union of the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IUHPS).

    INHIGEO achieves its objective by sponsoring a major annual symposium with associated field activities. It also promotes publication of individual and collective works on the history of geology and issues a substantial Annual Record that details historical research into earth sciences worldwide, publicises other pertinent historical activities and provides scholarly reviews of recent literature on the subject.

    The primary objective of the INHIGEO involves promoting studies in the history of geological disciplines. In so doing,the Commission endeavours to stimulate and coordinate the activities of regional, national, and international organizations having shared purposes. The Commission also works to foster the publication of individual and collective works that illuminate the history of the geological sciences.

    INHIGEO achieves its objective by sponsoring a major annual symposium with associated field activities. It also promotes publication of individual and collective works on the history of geology and issues a substantial "Annual Record" that details historical research into earth sciences worldwide, publicises other pertinent historical activities and provides scholarly reviews of recent literature on the subject.

    The INHIGEO 2021 Conference, due to the Sars-Cov-2 Pandemic, will be held on-line from the Polish Geological Institute-National Research Institute Headquarters – Warsaw.

    EAGE Near Surface Geoscience Division is arranging the Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition 2021 to be held in Bordeaux, France, from 29 August  to 2 September 2021.

    This year’s event will be hosted for the first time in Bordeaux, where EAGE will introduce the 1st Conference on Hydrogeophysics alongside the 27th European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics, and the 2nd Conference on Geophysics for Infrastructure Planning, Monitoring and BIM. Without a doubt the main conference and the two parallel meetings cover topics that are of societal relevance for the whole world and our near-surface geoscience community.

    EAGE division organises focused conferences and responds to the need of its members by providing new and attractive topics that can provide an environment to move the science and technology forward while also addressing the need of our society. Bordeaux is a hub for non-destructive testing (NDT) in France and French companies are on the forefront of developing complex infrastructures such as high-speed trains, underground facilities as well as bridges, airports and shipping ports. This is therefore a great opportunity to welcome newcomers to the event, particularly to the Infrastructure Planning, Monitoring and BIM conference. Design and civil engineers, city planners and geotechnical communities are welcomed to take an active role in the conference after a successful presence in the NSG2019 in the Hague.

    Water and natural resources in a rapidly changing climate and their implications to build a resilience society are not hidden from NGOs and governmental bodies. The introduction of the Hydrogeophysics parallel conference aims to connect the science with the public sectors and governmental entities, and these communities are welcomed to attending and exchanging their knowledge and needs with EAGE Division in Bordeaux.

    Registration will open on 1st April 2021.

    The COP26 UN climate change conference set to take place in Glasgow in November 2020 has been postponed due to COVID-19.

    This decision has been taken by the COP Bureau of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), with the UK and its Italian partners.

    Dates for a rescheduled conference in 2021, hosted in Glasgow by the UK in partnership with Italy, have been set to 1-12 November 2021.

    In light of the ongoing, worldwide effects of COVID-19, holding an ambitious, inclusive COP26 in November 2020 is no longer possible.

    Rescheduling will ensure all parties can focus on the issues to be discussed at this vital conference and allow more time for the necessary preparations to take place. We will continue to work with all involved to increase climate ambition, build resilience and lower emissions.
