IUGG 2019 and JPdL – A groundbreaking relationship


Did you know that the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) is one of the oldest scientific organizations in the world? It celebrated its 100 anniversary in 2019!

JPdL was proud to have organized the 27th IUGG General Assembly, which took place in Montreal from July 8-18 during the association’s centennial year. 

Two years of planning led to a remarkable scientific conference. From the very beginning, JPdL acted as a strategic partner and oversaw everything from logistics to conference and destination management.
