Research infrastructure in solid Earth geoscience

The Swedish Research Council and the Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU) invites to an afternoon on available research infrastructures of relevance to solid Earth geosciences. Welcome!


14 November 2022




Digital meeting via Zoom


The meeting is free of charge and no registration is needed.

Research infrastructure in solid Earth geoscience

At the meeting infrastructure staff will present which capabilities of relevance to solid Earth geosciences the infrastructures can provide – either now or in the near future – and how users from academia, public and private sectors can access these capabilities.

The presentation will be followed by an “open house” where participants in parallel break-out sessions can ask further questions to the infrastructure staff to learn more on capabilities and access. It will be possible to jump between the sessions.

The meeting will be in English.
