From 15 to 16 May 2019, over 50 members of the SERA community have met for the Second Annual Science Meeting in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. It was hosted by the British Geological Service BGS. Many interesting presentations were held, each work package and task giving a brief summary of its status quo and future plans. Fruitful discussions arose and many challenges could be adressed during these two days. To also further promote networking, one of SERA’s main objectives in the scientific community, the organisation team planned a social dinner on Wednesday night where the discussion could be continued over a delicious meal. The Science Meeting provided an excellent opportunity to strengthen international collaboration and to share all of the different participants contributions.
