SMHI's research at EGU 2023

SMHI will participate in the annual research conference European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna. This year SMHI's researchers will participate in various events within our disciplines of meteorology, hydrology, oceanography and climate.

Every year, researchers in the earth sciences gather for the major European conference arranged by EGU, the European Geosciences Union. The conference provides an important forum for researchers to meet other researchers, discuss the latest in research and establish new collaborations. In recent years, the conference has changed format, and this year it takes place both online and on-site.

SMHI participates in EGU 2023 with splinter meetings, sessions, presenations, PICOs and posters. Below is an overview of events where SMHI contributes. The full programme and more information can be found on: EGU23 website.
