The Council for Geoscience (CGS) has previously hosted three successful Summits in the years 2016, 2017 and 2019. In 2021, the CGS hosted its biennial Summit. The Summits bring together researchers, scientists, decision-makers as well as nationally and internationally renowned experts for the exchange of knowledge, experiences and research innovations in the geoscientific space. The CGS took this opportunity to also showcase its operational programmes and strategy which are aligned to the national developmental imperatives of South Africa.
In order to continue with this tradition, the CGS will host a Geoscience Summit on 25 to 27 October 2022 which will be a celebration of 110 years of CGS existence and excellence in geoscience research.
Dates and venues of the summit activities will be confirmed in due course. The build-up to the summit will include the following:
