EGU 2016 took place in Vienna between the 17th and the 23rd of April. We presented our work in progress through 4 posters from the team in Lyon. Nicolas Flament (Sydney) presented his work, as well as the team of Zurich. The meeting was a chance for Maelis Arnould, who started her PhD in September, to sit with her two advisors from across oceans (N. Flament and N. Coltice).

The group of Lyon presented a poster and a presentation at the session organised by Claudia Alves de Jesus Rydin (ERC): “Promoting and supporting equality of opportunities in geosciences”. As a feminine group, we were happy to share our experience on how we try to promote women in sciences, focusing on local actions and emphasizing democracy through a flat organisation. It was the occasion to speak with people on this subject that matters a lot for us.

N. Coltice gave a talk about getting funded through ERC, pointing that it is a difficult but important task to find ways to take into account the decline of funding for the operation of everyday collectivity.
