EUROVOLC (European Network of Observatories and Research Infrastructures for Volcanology) is a EU/H2020 project aimed at promoting an integrated and harmonized European volcanological community able to fully support, exploit and build-upon existing and emerging national and pan-European research infrastructures, including e-Infrastructures of the European Supersite volcanoes. For this purpose, EUROVOLC will carry out Networking and Joint Research activities, and offer Transnational and Virtual Access to the main European Volcano Observatories and Volcano Research Institutions. Summer schools are the most relevant EUROVOLC teaching initiative addressed to young scientists.
