The Geologische Vereinigung e.V. (GV) is a non-profit international Earth science organization with more than 1,600 members in over 64 countries. Membership is open to scientists and students worldwide. Since 1910 the GV's mission has been:

  • to promote scientific study of the Earth's development in time and space and to publish the results of these scientific studies,
  • to promote cooperation among science administrators and scientific organizations,
  • to initiate and participate in geoscience programs and projects,
  • to promote interdisciplinary discussions, publication, and the dissemination of information.

An active exchange of ideas and experiences keeps a scientific community alive. Both junior and senior gelogists benefit from these exchanges. The GV fosters them through:

  • organising research conferences,
  • sponsoring short courses,
  • organising excursions,
  • publishing the International Journal of Earth Science, the Geologische Rundschau, and
  • publishing monographs on the frontiers of Earth sciences with other European societies.

GV supports and sponsors activities of organizations, scientific working groups and colleagues who share the the basic mission of the Geologische Vereinigung. Some of the scientific groups are:

SOCIETY ACTIVITIES

Annual Meetings

Research conferences are dedicated to key topics of international interest. Members pay reduced fees. See Conferences for upcoming dates.

Short Courses

Several universities offer short courses open to students. Headed by experts, these short courses are perfect for students wanting to broaden their knowledge in fields not offered at their own universities. The GV encourages students to attend by offering financial support towards fees and travel expenses. See Short Courses & Field Trips for more information.

Excursions

In order to intensify fieldwork in geologically interesting regions, the GV offers excursions for its members. These are led by experts familiar with the area and the scientific topic(s). Students are entitled to financial support to help cover travel expenses.

Students in the GV

Student members can profit from the experience and knowledge of senior geologists, e.g. at meetings, short courses, excursions, and through the International Journal of Earth Sciences. Furthermore, they can establish a network at their level for exchanging data and information. Students pay reduced membership and conference fees and get financial support for travel expenses to GV research conferences, excursions and short courses.
