The 81st EAGE Annual Conference and Exhibition will take place in a couple
of weeks in London, UK. At the event, a number of flagship ESF activities
will take place, including the global Geo-Quiz, student career advice
activities and networking and the Laurie Dake Challenge.
Central to the ESF mission is to facilitate students to participate in these
activities and to provide students with a platform to present their work to
an international audience. To facilitate this, the ESF provides a number of
travel grants to excelling students to participate in the EAGE Annual
Conference & Exhibition.
Student recipients of ESF travel grants were able to do so based on the
quality of their technical programme contribution, as winners of our Geo-
Quiz programme or as finalists in the Laurie Dake challenge.
Through these various means, the ESF has been able to support students
from 21 different countries with support to join the international meeting.
With students coming as far as Brazil, Canada and Australia, the student
involvement reflects both diversity as well as academic excellence.
In total, students for 42 countries are expected to participate in the ESF
activities during the 81st EAGE Annual Conference & Exhibition. The wide
international attendance is combined with a strong presence from the
United Kingdom as well, giving the event both international flair whilst
allowing for a local scientific touch as well!
