The "Student Initiative" is a group of Geophysics students who represent all german students involved in Geophyscs. We take care of the coordination between the german universities who offer Geophysics. Moreover, we have a seat in the managing board of the "Deutsche Geophysikalische Gesellschaft" (German Geophysical Society) with which we can activly co-decide on current geophysical issues.
To take on these tasks the student representation is divided into the following areas:
from l. to r.: Anke Schürer, Anna Schreder, Anne-Sophie Reiß, Paula Rulff, Carsten Lehmann, Benedikt Seitzer, Teresa Steinke, Bernhard Schmitz, lying: Nico Schliffke
To have a fast platform for communication for all Geophysics students, Thomas Hertweck established a mailing list some time ago. In the meantime the mailing list has over 500 subscribers from over 15 countries, students and former students. Information on job offers, the next GAP, or information on general information on the study of geophysics. If you are interested in this mailing list just follow the 'link to the mailing list'.
There were developed several projects and further projects are following. But also for the support and realisiationactive students are needed!
We are supported by the DGG and other organisations. But we are looking for new cooperation partners all the time.
Students Conference GAP
The Geophysical Activity Programme (GAP) is a conference for students from Germany and neighbouring countries. It is hosted by students by a different universities every year . The aim of GAP is to bring together geophysics and geoscience students and to provide a platform for students to establish contact with relevant companies and research institutions. Excursions, workshops and talks from scientic and industry complete a wonderful long weekend.
We provide material for a presentation about the study of Geophysics at schools. Students can go to their former school and can give a talk about their study. On the german part of our website there is a script and some slides available for downloading. The project is funded by the DGG.
|Poster & Flyer
You can download a poster and a flyer about the study of Geophysics in Germany (only available in german) on the german part of our webpage.
We want to enhance the exchange of information between the geophysical institutes. We are working together with the 'Komitee Studienfragen' of the DGG. This is a long-term project due to the fact that there are always possible improvements.
