Meetings

A major part of the 3DTeLC project was summer schools hosted by the partners on the project. These events provided an opportunity for the partners to meet and also to share the progress of the project with students from around Europe. The Training schools were split into two lab-based schools (Portsmouth and Clermont-Ferrand) and two field-based schools (Santorini and Catania). All involved student centred activities studying geohazards both indoor and outdoor lessons. The indoor lessons were composed of a selection of class room based activities and courses integrated with special lessons given in the 3-D virtual reality suite. There were also visits to partner institutions as part of these events, such as the INGV Catania volcanic observatory in Sicily. The project involves a number of outdoor field courses with lessons that will allow students to recognise and learn about the geohazard landforms and structures previously studied in the classroom and 3-D virtual reality environment.

Clermont-Ferrand Virtual Summer School 2020

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, the Clermont summer school (5 days duration) was held remotely using WebEx, hosted by University Clermont Auvergne, with participation from institutions from across Europe, including UK, France, Greece and Italy. Whilst very different from the original summer school plans, hosting the event remotely provided a good opportunity for the partners to showcase the virtual reality models produced for the project, and for the students allowed them to visit field sites remotely in times that they otherwise could not.

Sicily Summer School 5th-14th May 2019

INGV hosted a workshop on onshore and offshore natural hazards as part of this Erasmus+ project in Sicily, Italy; hosting 22 students and 13 staff from universities and institutions from across Europe, including UK, France, Greece and Italy. The theme of the workshop was visualising and understanding natural hazards on the Earth's surface and seabed and involved field excursions around Mt Etna, INGV Catania and the Astrophysics observatory.

Santorini Summer School 12th-21st October 2018

The University of Athens hosted a workshop on onshore and offshore natural hazards (12-21st October 2018) as part of this Erasmus+ project in Santorini, Greece; hosting 18 students and 20 staff from universities and institutions from across Europe, including UK, France, Greece and Italy. The theme of the workshop was visualising and understanding natural hazards on the Earth's surface and seabed. Field excursions included visits to the Nea Kameni lava dome and Metaxma mine where volcanic deposits from the Minoan eruption of the Santorini Caldera can be sequenced.

Portsmouth Summer School -23rd-31st July 2018

The University of Portsmouth hosted the first workshop on onshore and offshore natural hazards (23rd-31st July 2018) as part of this Erasmus+ project; hosting 18 students and 20 staff from universities and institutions from across Europe, including UK, France, Greece and Italy. The theme of the workshop was visualising and understanding natural hazards on the Earth's surface and seabed; and involved workshops, virtual reality tours and field excursions to the Isle of Wight led by academic staff from each of the participating European institutions.
