Interdisciplinary training of volcano scientists
The use of innovative methods in volcano science will advance our knowledge of volcanic and geothermal systems and may also result in economic and social benefits. The EU-funded IMPROVE project will perform research to define the underground structure and dynamics of volcanic and geothermal systems aiming to significantly impact volcano science and the science–industry relationship. The project will employ exploration and monitoring approaches and disciplines such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry, engineering and informatics. The IMPROVE consortium consists of nine academic beneficiaries, one partner from a state-owned company in the energy sector and two technology-developing SMEs. Together they will train a new generation of volcano scientists to manage interdisciplinary understanding and knowledge, promote innovation and cooperate in an inter-sectorial open science environment.
