Student Geoscientific Society e.V.
The Student Geoscientific Society was established in June 2007 and incorporated under German law in May 2012. As a nonprofit society, SGS promotes knowledge about geoscientific topics and encourages close collaboration among students and professionals of the various geoscientific disciplines and adjacent fields of science.
The activities of SGS are based on the dedication of undergraduate and graduate students to the geosciences and to sharing our three guiding principles of leadership, community, and networking. Strong partnerships with the geoscientific coordination platform Geo.X, international and national geoscientific societies as well as best relations to contacts from industry and academia provide an excellent scientific and organizational framework for our projects.
We focus our projects on improving the range and quality of course offerings by organizing field camps and trips to national and international scientific conferences, hosting guest lectures of highly renowned geoscientists from all over the world, holding a library, and mailing a monthly email newsletter. In addition, we network university and high school students with young professionals and experienced geoscientists from industry and academia in order to spark interest in academic studies of our sciences and improve career opportunities for young geoscientists. SGS further supports students in Berlin and Potsdam in operating the first official Student Chapters of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE) in Germany.
