EAGE supports in the following ways:

  • PACE Support
  • PACE Event Support
  • Student PACE Support


The Programme for Association and Cooperation in Earth sciences (PACE) supports individual geoscientists to participate actively in selected EAGE events. This support is available for accepted speakers who cannot obtain financial support from other sources. With this programme EAGE strives to encourage the exchange of information and knowledge among the global geoscientific community. PACE is coordinated by the PACE Committee.
