Strong CARE-C representation at the 2024 EGU General Assembly

A notable number of researchers of CARE-C at the Cyprus Institute have participated in the recent European Geosciences Union- EGU 2024 General Assembly, which took place in Vienna, Austria and online on 14-19 April 2024.

More specifically, 12 research scientists of CARE-C delivered oral, poster and PICO presentations, contributed to other presentations and co-chaired sessions, showcasing the high-quality scientific research of the Centre. You can find out more details of  the presentations and photos at the end of the article.

The EGU General Assembly 2024 brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

20,979 registered attendees from 116 countries participated at the event in Vienna, and 2,591 joined online from 109 countries. It was a great success with 18,896 presentations given in 1,044 sessions. Additionally, 57% of the abstracts were identified as contributions from Early Career Scientists (ECS).
