International Partnership: Geoverbund ABC-J

The Geoverbund ABC-J is the geoscientific network of the Aachen-Bonn-Cologne/Jülich research area (comprising the Universities Bonn Aand Cologne, the RWTH Aachen and the Forschungszentrum Jülich).

In many ways Geoverbund is a mirror of the SAGES network in Scotland.

In 2016 SAGES and Geoverbund ABC-J formed a partnership to work together on bilateral research projects, post graduate education and staff exchange.

The foci of our joint activities to date have been;

  • Establishment of joint working groups on Carbon (contact Dr Christian Schröder for more details), and Water (contact Dr Alexandre Gagnon or Prof. David Blackwood).
  • Joint Masters studentships in Earth System Science using HPC (contact Dr Massimo Bollasina).
  • Various students and ECR training exchanges (contact Dr John Howe).
  • Staff exchange programme (contact Prof. Mark Inall).
  • We welcome all SAGES members to contact the above people if they wish to become involved in any of these initiatives.
