The objectives of the Association are to promote the development and application of geosciences and related engineering subjects, to promote innovation and technical progress and to foster the communication, fellowship and cooperation between those working in, studying or otherwise being interested in these fields.

EAGE was founded in 1951 when much of the formality of an earlier era still persisted. But, from the beginning, the Association managed to stay true to its motto ‘Quaere et Invenies’, Seek and ye shall find. EAGE and its successors reached out first to geophysicists, but then as the nature of the petroleum industry changed, it broadened its platform. There were watersheds in 1989 and again in 1995 over the EAEG, EAPG and establishment of the EAGE we know today.
