Why is there a geographic imbalance in Earth and space sciences? Why is almost half of Europe under-represented? The general answer has always been: lack of funding. The new virtual world could mean a solution for poorer regions but the talk on Monday (EPSC2020-948) will show that it is not the only problem.
This splinter session is a brainstorming session where we are searching for answers together.
Scientists, engineers, teachers, amateurs, policy makers especially from Eastern Europe are welcome! Europlanet is our society, let's shape it together.
The link to the session will be available to everybody shortly before 2 pm CEST:
