EAGE supports in the following ways:


  1. PACE Travel Grant
  2. PACE Event Support
  3. Student Travel Grant

This Programme for Association and Co-operation in Earth sciences (PACE) focuses on geoscientists in developing countries. In connection with EAGE's main goals: "...to promote the application of geosciences ...", through PACE, EAGE strives to encourage the exchange of information and knowledge among the global geoscientific community.

PACE is coordinated by the PACE Committee, consisting of a Chairman, a Vice-Chairman, a Secretary-Treasurer and several representatives. The Committee members convene regularly to discuss delegate support.

PACE Travel Grant

The PACE programme supports individual geoscientists from developing countries to participate actively in our events. This support is available for accepted speakers. The PACE support application form for a specific event is accessible through the event’s website.

  • Only presenters of accepted oral and/or poster presentations who cannot obtain financial support given by their university/institute or other resources will be eligible to receive a grant.
