This Monday 1st of June marks the starting point of the FR-CA workshop gathering scientists from the two continents
During three days, researchers in geology and vulcanology from the French University Blaise Pascal and the two Canadians University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University will have the opportunity to meet and report the results of their researches within a warm and convivial setting. This workshop continues what has been set up last year in Vancouver. It enhances the collaboration and fulfills the need of joint-research between the two continents. Many subjects will be covered through thematic presentations. Research, cooperation, brainstorming about further collaborations and project milestone establishment are some of the goals of such a rare event.
More than 50 researchers and officials were present for this first day of workshop.
