Institute of Earth Sciences participates in the EVE project

The Institute of Earth Sciences participates in the EVE project, supported by the UCPM-ECHO project of the European Union. The projects  aims at facilitating the interaction and cooperation between scientists and Civil Protection Agencies (CPs) to timely anticipate to volcanic disasters. Built upon the previous EC ECHO funded project VeTOOLS, the aim of EVE is to combine the knowledge on the past eruptive behavior of the volcanoes with the analysis of real time monitoring in order to construct the European volcano EWS.
