The first meeting of the Mediterranean Geosciences Union (MedGU), the geosciences society that brings together the scientists of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean in the fields of Earth, planetary and space sciences, will be held on 25-27 November 2021, under the chairmanship of the ITU Eurasia Institute of Earth Sciences, at ITU Süleyman Demirel Cultural Center.

Prof. Dr. Attila Çiner, the architect of the Mediterranean Geosciences Union, interpreted the fact that more than 1,000 papers from 60 countries have already been sent to the first meeting, in which hundreds of participants from all over the world will attend both face-to-face and online, as promising for the future of MedGU. All ITU members are invited to the meeting where important names from ITU Eurasia Institute of Earth Sciences will also take part as speakers.

Mediterranean Geosciences Union (MedGU)

MedGU was established with the objective of fostering fundamental geoscience research, as well as applied research that addresses key societal and environmental challenges. The union will make more impact in policy-making regarding geosciences and in the implementation of solutions to preserve the natural environment and to create more sustainable societies for the people living in the Mediterranean region. It is hoped that the union will also provide opportunities to Mediterranean geoscientists to undertake interdisciplinary collaborative research.

The official journal of MedGU will be Mediterranean Geoscience Reviews of Springer Nature.
