23rd – 28th April 2023.
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is the leading organisation for Earth, planetary and space science research in Europe. Their General Assembly brings together geoscientists from all over the world for one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU General Assembly 2023 event provides a forum where scientists, especially early career scientists, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
The EGU General Assembly 2023 will be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) with sessions both in person and online. Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance colleagues from the following partner organisations will be in attendance, running sessions and presenting knowledge on flood resilience:
- Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at London School of Economics (LSE)
- International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA)
- Zurich Insurance Group
- Practical Action
You can find out more about the event on the EGU2023 website.
This event has now taken place. Viktor Roezer, Research Fellow at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics has shared his reflections of this years EGU23 event, what research has learned from recent disasters and where to go from here.
