“INVOGE or International Geological Masters in Volcanology and Geotechniques

INVOGE or The International Geological Masters in Volcanology and Geotechniques is offered by Blaise Pascal (France), Milan-Bicocca (Italy), Michigan Technological and Buffalo Universities (USA). Over 5 years a generous financial aid is provided through the ATLANTIS EU/US programme (2009 to 2014). INVOGE is sutainable and will continue to operate after 2014 after the end of EU/US start-up funding with a range of individual and group funding options.

Outreach

Invitation from the Greek government

“The Greek Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks has extended an invitation to ClerVolc scientists to collaborate in monitoring and research activities at Santorini Volcano, Greece, which has been in a state of unrest since January 2011. The remote sensing capabilities, and knowledge of Santorini Volcano, within the ClerVolc consortium places its scientists in an ideal position to collaborate with Greek colleagues in the event of an eruption.

Contract signed with the consortium Geothermia

ClerVolc, through its expertise in the geology of volcanic terrains, is one of the partners of the consortium ‘Geothermia’, along with the company Electerre de France (coordinator), the French Geological Survey (BRGM), the engineering company CI, and the microbiology company Nosoco…” [click to read more]
