The European Geoscience Union (EGU) General Assembly is Europe’s premier geosciences union and brings together scientists from all over the world. This year the conference took place in Vienna between 18.04 – 22.04.2016. The EGU was a great success with over 4800 oral and 10300 poster presentation. At the conference 13650 scientists from over 100 countries participated, of which 25% were students and over 50% were early career scientists. I attended a lot of talks and poster presentations within the five days of the conference.

At the third day of the EGU I gave an oral presentation on my PhD work with the title “Statistical Dynamical Downscaling of present day and future precipitation regimes in southern Vietnam”. I received a lot of positive feedback and interesting questions from the international audience on my work afterwards. During other sessions on various topics that relates to my research focus I got some helpful input for my own study. Furthermore, during the daily poster sessions I got in touch with other young career scientists.

I deeply thank the GSGS for the opportunity to travel to the EGU in Vienna to receive a lot of new ideas for my future scientific work.
