09:00 - 17:00
Vienna, and online

The 2024 General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) is a conference that brings together geoscientists from a range of disciplines. Here's where you can find our scientists' work on heat stress, temperature overshoot, climate risk assessments for finance, and more.
