From the very beginning, DGGV has placed great emphasis on educational opportunities for its members. Thus, as early as 1849, conferences and excursions as well as monthly lecture events were the focus of the association’s activities – and this has remained so until today. Via DGGV’s website, members and users interested in geoscience can access information on the most diverse educational offers:
Every year in autumn, the DGGV holds its large annual conference at ever-changing locations. Further conferences on special topics are organized by the various DGGV sections and working groups.
For many years, the DGGV has offered geoscientific field trips, guided by professional colleagues, which are suitable for both professionals and those interested in geoscience. Members of the DGGV receive a discount.
Through its website, DGGV offers an ever-expanding range of webinars on various geoscience topics.
