Meetings and Conferences

Conferences are only for people with longstanding professional experience and a high level of expertise, right? – Not at all!

Are you working on an interesting project as part of your bachelor or master thesis and would you like to present your results to a wider audience? No problem: There are junior sessions at various conferences giving the next generation of geoscientists the opportunity to present themselves and their work.

Are you registered for a conference for the first time and unsure about what to expect and how to get in touch with the other participants? In order to ensure you a smooth start into the day-to-day conference routine, the JDGGV organizes pre-conference warm-up-meetings, at which you will receive the latest conference news and schedules and mingle with other young participants in a relaxed atmosphere.

Where can I study Earth Sciences

In the future we would like to give you an overview of all geo-locations in Germany (and a bit beyond).
This page is under construction. If you want to see your institute in this list, please send us a short text to junge(at) and info(at)
