Congresso geologico internazionale (International Geology Congress) – OSLO 2008

Successful Geology Congress

For nine days 6,000 scientists from 113 countries have been taking part in lively discussions within almost every conceivable aspect of geology.
“The 33rd International Geology Congress has been a success. It has been exhausting, but a fantastic experience”, says Secretary General Anders Solheim.

It has taken four years of intensive work by the Nordic Organising Committee to prepare for the largest academic congress ever to be held in Norway. “In general, almost all participants have been both positive and content, and have given very good feedback to us through the Congress committees. The lectures and scientific programme have been of high quality”, he tells us.

The Congress began with the theme of the origins of life, while the theme for the final day took geology into outer space. Academics have discussed questions of climate change, natural disasters, medical challenges and the future energy mix. Excursions throughout the Nordic countries have been arranged before, during and after the Congress.The recruitment of new academics is important for the future of geology, and the Congress has offered stipends for young, promising researchers. The Geohost stipend has made it possible for 571 people from the whole world to take part in the Congress.Solheim also wants to thank all the volunteers and the staff “for a tremendous effort, with hard and enthusiastic work both day and night”.

“Now it remains to wish Australia all the best with the next geological congress in 2012”, Anders Solheim adds.
