The European Geoscience Union General Assembly 2020 was this year converted into EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (#shareEGU20). The online program was held from 4th to 8th of May with inter- and transdisciplinary sessions, disciplinary sessions, Union symposia, and great debates. Short courses and other events took place in different formats.
The Baltic Sea Underground Innovation Network was also present at the #shareEGU20 with presentations in two different sessions: “GI5.7. Multidisciplinary underground laboratories and test sites – what makes them tick?” organized and convened by the BSUIN team members, and “GI1.2. COST Actions in Geosciences: breakthrough ideas, research activities and results”.
Into the session of G5.7. Multidisciplinary underground laboratories and test sites – what makes them tick? more than 20 abstracts were accepted and in total 17 presentations were kept as online displays.
Although the online part of #shareEGU20 has now ended commenting on the online presentations and sending posts to the authors through the online platform is open until the end of May 2020. See links below for the two aforementioned sessions

Hopefully, we´ll meet in Vienna in 2021 for the EGU2021.

Study of natural background radiation in Callio Lab (Finland)
The Callio Lab is one of the six underground laboratories participating in the BSUIN project. The natural background radiation (NBR) measurements were performed in Callio Lab (located in the Pyhäsalmi Mine (Finland)) in July 2018 by a group from the University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland. The NBR measurement carried out at a depth of 1436 m (~4000 m w.e.) in the felsic volcanic bedrock occurs.

Interview with Mia Pujol on intelligent lightning in underground conditions
Mia Pujol wrote her thesis on the topic of ”Lighting at the End of the Tunnel-The Design of Adaptive and Intelligent Lighting for an Underground Workspace”. She chose the research question with the determination to not fall into the trap of just formulating a very complex research question. ”When the topic of a thesis is as unique as mine is, there is often the tendency to over-complicate”, says Pujol. She thinks one of the most important things to achieve is to make the lighting accessible to a large number of people.

Taurimas Valys: our ambition is to boost Baltic Sea Region into another economic level
Baltic Sea Underground Innovation Network (BSUIN) project involves 14 partners, 17 associated organizations, 6 underground labs and many people who share their expertise of different fields in order to reach the aim of this project – to make the underground laboratories in the Baltic Sea region more accessible for innovation, business development and science. We would like to uncover the curtain and introduce specialists who work in this project so we are presenting series of articles about BSUIN project team members.
Have questions or considering to start a project?
