EUropean GEosciences students Network
EUGEN is the abbreviation for the ‚EUropean GEosciences students Network‘. The main goal of the EUGEN association is to organize annual meetings in Europe for geoscience students from all over the world. The name ‚EUGEN‘ has become a synonym for this meeting. The idea of EUGEN was born in the summer of 1995 during the national meeting of german geology students. The very first EUGEN meeting 1996 turned out to be an instant success: about 120 students of earthscience related subjects from 18 universities representing 9 European nations met in the Black Forest region in southwest Germany. Since then, the EUGEN meeting has happened every year, always in a different part of Europe.
