The Department of Geosciences of the University of Fribourg and the Platform geosciences of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) cordially invite you to participate in the 17th Swiss Geoscience Meeting to be held on Friday, November 22nd and Saturday, November 23rd, 2019 in Fribourg.

On the first conference day an afternoon plenary session will take place under the theme “Geoscience goes underground: understanding resources & processes”. The future of subsurface planning will be discussed in a first talk. Two speakers will present progress made in understanding the deep subsurface geologic system in the frame of geothermal projects and nuclear waste repository exploration. A fourth talk will discuss the relevance of understanding the state of stress in the crust, which is a key issue in planning of many projects.

The second day a series of 25 scientific symposia will cover the diverse spectrum of current research in geosciences, encompassing the lithosphere, the hydrosphere, the cryosphere, the biosphere, the atmosphere and the anthroposphere.

Symposium 20. Taking Stock of Transformative Research & Education on Mountains. What Future Avenues? is jointly organised by CIRM, MRI, and FoLAP. More information in this symposium is available here.
