SEG Student Chapter at the University of Geneva
The Geneva Student Chapter is active since 2001. The chapter members are mainly graduate students working in the Ore Deposits Group Earth Sciences Section and also students from other groups such as the Geochronology Group. To get an idea about our activities browse this website or check the annual reports.
The chapter organises excursions, invited talks and short courses with topics related to economic geology, sometimes in collaboration with other Universities such as the ETH Zürich and Grenoble (Fr). We often get together over a beer and share ideas and have discussions.
The chapter is supported by the the Society of Economic geologists which have a rich program of student support. Find out more about the Society at the SEG website.
Our student chapter is always delighted to receive industry donations which are mainly used to support Master student activities in Geneva, such as mobility for field trips and short courses, but also aimed at supporting in-house activities such as conferences and talks, and also acquiring equipment for gold panning expeditions. Our president Vincent Casanova will be happy to provide details on how to support our chapter.
