Fathom’s research at EGU23
This year, Fathom’s team of academics return in force to the cobblestone streets (and beer halls) of Vienna. The annual European Geosciences Union (EGU) general assembly is a chance for academics from around the world to present their research and learn.
As global leaders in flood risk intelligence and advocates for full transparency and the scientific integrity of our work, being an active participant in the academic community is integral to our ethos as a business.
The team at Fathom comprises hydrologists, coastal engineers, oceanographers, climate change specialists and software developers. A number of the team are presenting their latest research at the conference, you can watch their presentations on demand below following the event.

What is EGU?
EGU is the European Geosciences Union, a non-profit organization headquartered in Munich and was founded in 2002. As the leading organization for earth, planetary, and space research in Europe, EGU has over 18,000 members from 135 countries. Each year EGU holds a General Assembly which is a yearly conference for geoscientists to share work and ideas with experts on an international scale.
You can catch up on Fathom’s presentations from last year at EGU22, watch Dr Ollie Wing’s presentation on UK flood risk in a changing climate.
