About EAGE Membership

The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers has been bringing together the geoscientific professional and academic communities for almost 70 years with ground-breaking events, top-level publications and much more. Being a member of EAGE connects you with 19,000 active professionals in the field, the latest scientific content, and a platform for advancing scientific progress.  

EAGE Membership and Representation

EAGE is an inclusive organization, where we see strength in diversity. We strive to have a fair representation in all EAGE activities reflecting the composition of the Association, including diversification in gender, nationality and professional backgrounds. We do so by actively pursuing variation in invited speakers and panelists, instructors and committee composition, amongst others. To enforce this, guidelines have been added in the EAGE By-Laws.

Through these, we aim for each EAGE committee to consist of a minimum of 20% female membership.

Types of Membership

EAGE offers a variety of Membership Types in order to accommodate the diversity of our global geoscience and engineering community. Aside from our traditional membership offering you may be able to join us as a Student Member or Retired Member.

There's more: if you remain a member of EAGE you will grow in our Membership Recognition Programme, offering substantial additional perks on top of our basic Membership Benefits.

Important Update on EarthDoc

EAGE Member Benefits include access to our EarthDoc Platform, the world's most significant database of geoscience and engineering papers. EarthDoc was founded over ten years ago, and since then it has grown beyond all expectation, now with over 70,000 papers stored in its archive. This is much more than our current system is capable of managing. To facilitate this massive capacity increase, EarthDoc will move to a much improved new platform, allowing for faster more effective research and a variety of other important upgrades and making sure EarthDoc remains available as a knowledge centre for the geoscience and engineering community.

All members of EAGE will continue to enjoy the use of EarthDoc, with first time members being able to immediately make use of the most recent two years of publications on the platform. As you grow as an EAGE Member in the EAGE Membership Recognition Programme, you will have greater access to the full backlog of content on the archive. However if you need to gain quick access to earlier years than can be accessed at your recognition level, EAGE asks a small contribution that will go a little way in helping us maintain and develop this important knowledge platform.

Here you can learn all about this important change to the EarthDoc Platform.

The Membership Recognition Programme

The EAGE Membership Recognition Programme was launched to recognize the loyalty of our members and the value they bring to the Association. The Programme offers a number of extra benefits to those renewing their membership based on the number of years they have been with the Association. Even after one year the benefits begin to kick in!

Important Update: As of January 2020 your Membership Recognition Level is used to determine your level of access to EAGE's EarthDoc system. You read all about this important change to EarthDoc here.

What's Coming in 2021?

EAGE is always evolving, and no two years are the same. Here is a little sample of what's to come in 2021:


EAGE events are among the world's most significant meetings for geoscientists and engineers, pushing the envelope on the science and technology that underlines much of modern life.

In 2020 EAGE's stalwart events, our excellent Annual Conference and Exhibition (taking place in Amsterdam) and our ground-breaking Near Surface Geoscience Conference and Exhibition, will be complimented by new future focused events, such as First EAGE Geophysical Monitoring Technology Conference and Exhibition, EAGE's latest foray into the field of geophysical monitoring solutions and technologies in a wide range of subsurface, reservoir and production challenges.

And that just scratches the surface: For more information on our global selection of events, including excellent events in every region, check out our EAGE Calendar of Events.


2020 saw the relaunch of EAGE's important EarthDoc platform, a new home for the over 70,000 papers arising from EAGE's events, journals and associated societies. The new platform helps EAGE manage the massive increase in papers we have experienced since the platform's inception, along with offering other key updates that you can read about here.

EAGE's selection of publications, including First Break, Near Surface Geophysics, Basin Research, Petroleum Geophysics and Geophysical Prospecting, will continue to deliver high quality technical content on the most pressing issues in geoscience and engineering.


Building on previous communities Women in Geoscience and EngineeringYoung Professional, Decarbonization and Energy Transition and Artificial Intelligence, in 2020 we saw the launch of two new topics based communities, Mineral Exploration Geophysics and Hydrogeophysics, two groups now very active on LinkedIn and dedicated to bringing these important subjects and associated innovations to the foreground. 2021 will see all of these communities develop key activities and opportunities for engagement on these topics. 

You can learn all about what's coming for our communities here.
