Thank you for a fantastic week!
The EGU General Assembly 2020 in the online format Sharing Geoscience Online was an exciting experiment in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and a great success throughout the entire week. 18,036 abstracts formed the programme with 701 scientific sessions, 11,380 presentation materials accompanied the abstracts and received 6,297 comments so far (to be continued until 31 May). A fantastic number of 26,219 individual chat users (combination device + browser) joined our 721 live text chats and posted 200,400 messages. Based on the combination of IP addresses and email addresses used for chat registration, we identified 22,376 individuals from 134 countries. Furthermore, virtual live sessions, Union Symposia, Great Debates, Townhall Meetings, and Short Courses were successfully held, and several networking events gave our community members the chance to meet online and share their research and ideas.
The Programme Committee of the EGU and the entire organizing team has been overwhelmed by the positive approach, exceptional engagement, and outstanding contributions by all of you from all around the world. We are very grateful and proud to see how our community has turned the challenges of the pandemic into opportunities and we are sure that part of these achievements will continue and contribute to greener events in the future.
We look very much forward to seeing you again at the next EGU General Assembly 2021, 25–30 April 2021.
