Mission and Vision
EGS provides public earth science knowledge to support the EU’s competitiveness, social well-being, environmental management and international commitments.
EGS coordinates the network of The Geological Surveys of Europe, jointly addressing European issues in the field of geoscience and collaborating on projects that directly inform EU, local and national policy, for the benefit of all European citizens.
EGS will establish a common European Geological Knowledge Base and, with its members, a unified Geological Service for Europe, based on:
1. Joint research with EU policy impact
2. Harmonising pan-European geological data
3. Sharing knowledge, capacities and infrastructure
