The CARIBACT International Joint Laboratory and its partners URGéo (Faculty of Sciences of the State University of Haiti) and ERC2 (Quisqueya University) are glad to invite you to participate in the Geosciences 2021 conference. The objectives of this scientific conference are to (1) present national and international research results with a focus on the Caribbean region in the broad disciplines of the geosciences: solid earth, ocean, atmosphere, climate; (2) enable Haitian and Caribbean researchers and students (masters and doctoral students) to present their research work; (3) stimulate exchanges and collaborations between participants from southern and northern countries. This conference will also be an opportunity to inaugurate CARIBACT, a 5-year program which aims to mobilize international cooperation for a better knowledge of natural hazards in the Caribbean in a spirit of exchanges and partnerships.
