EGU General Assembly 2019 Press Centre
The EGU General Assembly 2019, the largest geosciences meeting in Europe, 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 journalists and science ommunicators 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.
After the 2018 record-breaking meeting, with over 15,000 participants and close to 17,400 scientific presentations, we anticipate another large conference with a packed programme in 2019. The General Assembly 2019 is taking place at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 7 to 12 April. Media registration to the meeting is available free of charge to journalists, freelance science writers and public information officers from Europe and around the world. Please see eligibility requirements in the Registration page.
The EGU operates a Press Centre located by Foyer F on the yellow level 0 (ground floor) of the Austria Center Vienna, which includes a working space for journalists and a press conference room. Quiet side rooms for interviews, equipped with noise reduction material, are also available.
