The Australian Geoscience Council (AGC) is pursuing a Vision to raise the profile of Geoscience to be pre-eminent in Australia and to be recognised as one of the great fields of general science with Physics, Chemistry and Biology. In doing this the AGC is calling for nominations for the next National Geoscience Champion. This honour will be awarded to very few geoscientists. It will recognise major contributions to our science, craft and art, evidenced by technical, leadership, mentoring and collegial endeavours.
Applications for the 34th International Geological Congress Travel Grant Scheme for Early-Career Australian and New Zealand Geoscientists applications for 2019 are open now.
Individuals are invited to submit an abstract for AGCC 2018. The submission form is now open and will be available until the cut-off date of 16 June 2018 on the convention’s official website.
