EuroGeoSurveys (EGS) and the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) recently teamed up to create
bigger impact for geoscience. By signing a memorandum of understanding, both organisations lay the
foundation for a strategic partnership with a singular goal – to bring the solutions of geoscience to the
forefront and pave the way for a sustainable future.
To officially launch this strategic alliance, EFG and EGS are already working on a joint Public Relations Strategy for European Geoscience. The agreement also involves a close cooperation between expert panels, scoping of relevant project opportunities, and coordination in the field of member services.
EFG President Marko Komac welcomed the agreement stating: “One Earth. One science that helps to understand it – geology. By signing the MoU between EFG and EGS, the two umbrella organisations will join forces, knowledge, experience and resources for a sustainable future.”
According to EGS President Christophe Poinssot, “this MoU represents a major milestone in EuroGeoSurveys’ efforts to collaborate with like-minded organisations and promote the role of geoscience in driving sustainable development in Europe. Through our close cooperation, we will be able to leverage the expertise of our respective expert panels and support our shared mission. I am confident that this collaboration will be a fruitful one and bring benefits to all involved”.
Representing together more than 50,000 European geologists, both from the public and the private sector, EGS and EFG are committed to working hand in hand to achieve a joint vision.
