The first Young Professionals Summit took place at the Baden-Powell House in London on 26 November 2018. Young Professionals from all participating societies had a great time developing their skills and expanding their network.
Your Career Symposium
The Symposium is an event created and organized by the EAGE Young Professionals community. Drawing from the positive experience of 2018, the Symposium will again take place at the EAGE Annual in 2019 with a similar one-day interactive format. This year, the event received the support of Emerson and focuses on digital skills for young professionals and students interested in making the most of their early career in the digital transformation age.

In 2018 the Young Professionals community hosted the Your Career Symposium for the first time. This was a one-day meeting that preceded the EAGE Annual Meeting in Copenhagen 2018 and received the support of Saudi Aramco. This event had limited spaces and was intended for young professionals and graduating PhD students to develop or improve the skill set required to kick off in the Geoscience and Engineering world. Five excellent speakers from industry and academia lead an interactive session with the support of YP Committee leaders Filippo Broggini and matteo Ravasi. The full programme and bios are available here.
The Symposium was also a fantastic opportunity to network with your peers and future colleagues! In the words of the participants...
