Unfortunately, this year's EMS has to take place in a virtual format. Due to the Corona pandemic, opportunities for early career scientists (ECS) to meet new people at live conferences have diminished over the past year. Therefore, we would like to organise an ECS icebreaker at the start of the conference to counteract for this deficit. This event will be hosted by the MeteoXchange project. This project has the following objective: strengthening atmospheric exchange processes - an international network for meteorologists.
At the beginning of the event, different countries or their meteorological societies will have the opportunity to briefly present research opportunities in their countries in the field of meteorology to give young scientists an insight into the many different projects and possibilities. Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas in an informal atmosphere. We therefore encourage all ECS to attend this event to meet other young scientists before the session programme starts.
The icebreaker will take place in gather.town in the Events room.
