The General Meeting of the Geoverbund ABC/J and the presentation of the ABC/J Young Academics Award took place virtually on 19 November 2021 and was a great success!

Via GATHER TOWN, all members had the opportunity to follow the presentations on the Annual Report of the Geoverbund ABC/J (by Prof. Dr. Florian Wellmann, Director Geoverbund ABC/J), the Keynote Lecture (by Dr. Peter Bauer, ECMWF) as well as the presentations on the awarding of the Geoverbund ABC/J Young Academics Awards 2021 and to interactively exchange and network with each other. Following the presentations, it was possible to meet colleagues, exchange ideas or toast to the success of the award winners during a virtual poster session.

A big thank you to Peter Bauer, who gave us an exciting insight into the challenges of today's weather and climate research, machine learning methods and the necessity of creating a digital twin of our Earth system in his outstanding lecture "All together now - ECMWF and its new ecosystem in and around Bonn".

Afterwards, we were able to follow the absolutely exciting presentations on the research of our excellent young scientists - many thanks to Sabrina Schnitt, Christoph Böhm and Jonas Tusch for these insights! We wish you all the best for your promising careers and look forward to hearing more from you in the future!

A big thank you of course goes to our director, Florian Wellmann, who once again was able to demonstrate his great moderating skills and led us through the four and a half hour programme in a very entertaining way! And on his behalf, the Geoverbund ABC/J thanks all members who participated in this event.
