CARE-C participates at the European Geoscience Union (EGU) General Assembly 2022
in Vienna (23-27 May 2022)

CARE-C is actively contributing on climate initiatives and actions by participating at the EGU General Assembly 2022 held in Vienna, Austria on May 23-27, which brought together geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The event provided a platform of discussion addressed to scientists, researchers, who had the opportunity to present their work and further discuss their ideas with experts in the field of geoscience.

Within this framework, CARE-C of the Cyprus Institute participated face to face and online by a team who gave presentations in different topic sessions consisted by: Silas Michaelides (Adjunct Professor), Niki Paisi (Phd Student), Theo Economou (Associate Research Scientist), Katiana Constantinidou (Post-Doctoral Research Fellow), Seyed Omid Nabavi (Post-Doctoral Research Fellow), Pantelis Kiriakides (Phd Student), Athanasios Ntoumos (Phd Student), Anna Tzyrkalli (Research Assistant), George Zittis (Associate Research Scientist), Georgia Lazoglou (Post-Doctoral Research Fellow) and Diego Urdiales Flores (Master’s student). All presentations of the team, have received positive feedback while space was given for further interaction between the speakers and the participants.

See below the presentations of the CARE-C team:
