  • Student Program Sponsorship (1000€)

    The Goldschmidt student program is an exciting addition to the Goldschmidt conference that first trialed in Sacramento in 2014. Several student events are run over the week, including many workshops and seminars that introduce students and early career scientists to important concepts and techniques, or give advice on career development and work-life balance. This is an opportunity to raise awareness of your organisation among the next generation of geochemists.

    Sponsorship of a particular event in the student program is subject to the approval of the event leaders or organisers. Companies that are accepted as sponsors will receive:

    In order to further encourage the global nature of the conference we are running a presentation skills workshop to help students who do not speak English as a first language and are presenting for the first time. Our group leaders are young scientists, trained by a professional English language instructor, coming to share their knowledge with students.

    The benefits of this sponsorship include:

    • Your logo and name listed on the website, in the program volume, and in the app as a sponsor.
    • Your logo and name listed in thank you messages displayed during the poster sessions and through-out the venue.

    At Goldschmidt2017 successful applicants will meet the plenary of their choice and discuss the plenary lecture, their field of study and career path. This is an excellent opportunity for societies to promote themselves as actively nurturing the future of geochemistry.

Many of our scientists are members of societies, organisations or companies that come to Goldschmidt, and many of our sponsors may have an interest in specific sessions.

    Organisations with interest in particular areas of geochemistry and relationships with session convenors may want to sponsor a session. Session sponsorship is always dependent on the approval of the session convenors.

    Organisations that are accepted as sponsors will receive:
