Student E-Summits

The concept

The EAGE E-Summits is a series of online events targeted to connect geoscience & engineering students from around the globe through an interactive forum. For each delivery, it brings together a new group of panelists to discuss a new topic.

All students are encouraged to actively participate in the E-Summits. Curious to see what has been done so far? You can find an overview of our past and future deliveries below.

Upcoming E-Summits

26 May, Student Chapter Cooperation

Many EAGE Student Chapters are experienced at organizing activities at their own university, but the opportunities for chapters go beyond your own institution. During our May e-Summit, we will bring together representatives from student chapters to discuss inter-chapter cooperation and how to go about this.
