The European Association of Geochemistry firmly believes in the global availability of science and our goal is to promote geochemistry and serve the geochemistry community by developing activities such as the Goldschmidt Conferences, open access publications, support of early career scientists, outreach programs or recognition of scientific excellence.
To support EAG and its initatives, we welcome your donation.
Should you prefer to support a specific initiative, we have identified three of them where additional funding would make a significant difference to many scientists.

Help early career scientists attend the Goldschmidt Conference

The Goldschmidt Conference is a platform in which early career scientists become more familiar with standard scientific practice, forge long-lasting scientific partnerships, and get insight into their own research. Such an experience can have a major impact on a young researcher’s career, and is particularly important for early career scientists from low-income countries.

Through the Goldschmidt Grants Program, the EAG waives registration fees for scientists from low  income countries and provides grants to cover the costs of attending the meeting. But EAG on its own can only support a limited number of scientists (less than 20) so your support can help us fund additional applicants at Goldschmidt2021.

Support short courses in geochemistry

Short courses provide an unique opportunity for scientists to extend or to gain new knowledge in a wide range of geochemical areas, ranging from analytical techniques to modelling. They also provide a great networking platform for early-career scientists in their specialized field. Short courses are organized by leading researchers in their fields and participants pay a small fee that covers basic costs such as renting lecture rooms. Additional funding, however, is often needed.

At present, the EAG funds two short courses every year with €1000 per course, thereby supporting about 20 students. Each year, however, more short courses are proposed than can be offered due to lack of financial resources.

Support an open access, no page charges, EAG publication

The EAG believes strongly in sharing scientific advances through open-access high quality journals. To this end, we launched Geochemical Perspectives Letters (GPL) and Geochemical Perspectives (GP), which are entirely society owned and produced in house. While GP publishes invited contributions from leading scientists in their field, GPL offers a platform to publish submitted short, high-quality articles and carries NO author charges.

The production of each GPL article costs about €2000. At present, a large part of EAG’s budget goes into supporting the publication of these flagship journals, but we also would like to count on the support of the community to cover some of the publishing costs.
