Scottish Alliance for Geoscience, Environment and Society

SAGES is a mirror of Geoverbund ABC/J in many ways. As a multidisciplinary network, it pools expertise in geoscience and environmental science from across Scotland’s research base. Formally, SAGES is a partnership between the Universities of Aberdeen, Abertay, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrews, Stirling, SAMS UHI, SUERC, UWS and the British Geological Survey, Scotland.

In 2016 SAGES and Geoverbund ABC/J formed a partnership to work together on bilateral projects related to common research fields Carbon, Water, and HPC, post graduate education and staff exchange.

To date the following initiatives have been established:

  • joint final Bsc and MSc theses: student members of the Geoververbund can prepare their theses in cooperation with SAGES partners and apply for financial support from the Geoververbund.
  • students and ECR training exchanges: SAGES and Geoverbund members have access to various training offers of both networks
  • staff exchange programme: members of both networks can apply for financial support for research stays of several weeks in the respective partner network.

We welcome all Geoverbund members to contact the coordination office if they wish to become involved in any of these initiatives.
