European Federation of Geologists

The European Geologist (EurGeol) title is awarded by the European Federation of Geologists. The Federation represents the geological profession across Europe and has as members the professional associations of nineteen of the EU member countries. There are over 600 individual EurGeol title holders, of which the largest contingent is from the UK.

Other activities of the EFG include promoting the geological profession to the European Commission, for example by contributing to consultations on relevant EC directives; co-organising the International Geology Conference series; and publishing the biannual European Geologist magazine (distributed free to EurGeols).

The European Geologist magazine is the voice of the EFG and is published twice a year. It carries articles on geological issues, both technical and professional and other matters. These issues are now available to view online.
