Student Community

The RMetS Student Community was formed in November 2003 in response to the huge interest received from all students attending the RMetS 2003 Conference held at the University of East Anglia in September 2003. The first annual conference of the RMetS Student Community was held in Leeds in 2004. Since then there has been a conference every year.  In 2013 the conference was held at the University of Reading for the second time and there was an extremely high attendance this year.

The aims of the Community are as follows.

  • To share research and knowledge in meteorology and related fields
  • To provide short presentations by invited speakers on career development with an opportunity to meet major employers in the field
  • To meet and socialise with students in similar fields and establish a strong student community within the RMetS.

The next conference 'Impact of Science' for Student and Early Career Scientists will be held on the 11th and 12th July 2017. The call for abstracts is currently open and additional details can be found on the conference homepage
