A meeting will be taking place in February 2017 that is being organized by University Geoscience UK in conjunction with the Geological Society of London, the Royal Astronomical Society and the British Geological Survey.

The overarching aim of this meeting is to explore the future and the research challenges for the UK Geoscience Community over the next generation.

The aim is to define:

  • A vision for the next 25 years, encompassing the major research questions and challenges we, the UK geoscience community, should be addressing.
  • A roadmap to achieving this vision, using our collective strengths, in terms of scientific capacity and to map to and ultimately inform and influence policy makers and the funding landscape.

For more information please download the meeting flyer and the draft timetable.

Expressions of interest

The meeting will be limited to about 100 participants; hence at this stage we are seeking expressions of interest. If we are over-subscribed, a suitable cross section will be selected to be representative of the various sub-disciplines of Earth science.

Those interested in participating should download and complete the attached form and e-mail it to Vicky Hards (vlh@bgs.ac.uk) by 14 January 2017.
