The physical EGU General Assembly 2020 was cancelled because of the COVID-19 situation across Europe. Instead, the activities were transformed into EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (#shareEGU20): a week-long series of online activities held during the first week of May that support the community by fostering scientific communication.
The activities brought together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online allowed abstract authors to share presentation materials and open these for live discussion, as well as participate in a selection of online networking events.
Blue-Cloud coordinators Sara Garavelli and Dick M. A. Schaap participated on Monday, 4 May in the session "Blue-Cloud: Developing a marine thematic EOSC cloud to explore and demonstrate the potential of cloud-based open science in the domain of ocean sustainability": click here for the abstract.
