The Junge DGGV (“Young DGGV”, JDGGV) is a newly founded group of young geoscientists within the DGGV, bringing together students, young professionals, as well as doctoral students and postdocs. There is no precise age limit. Instead, all young scientists and young professionals are invited to participate. The group’s aim is to foster networking to exchange experiences and to facilitate the entry into the world of geosciences. Here, we dedicate ourselves to typical questions that young geoscientists are facing during their early careers as well as to the planning of various projects and events for professional knowledge transfer or just for fun.
