Exploiting the outcome of FUTUREVOLC: Stakeholder workshop, 5 November 2015, Hótel Örk, Hveragerði, SW-Iceland

The aim of the workshop is to demonstrate how the FUTUREVOLC project (futurevolc.hi.is) and related activities have contributed to advances in volcano monitoring and research, as well as dissemination of information on volcanic hazards and eruptions.

The workshop is aimed at various stakeholders of the project, focusing on nonscientific audience. The workshop will include a series of talks and time for discussions, followed by brainstorming in groups on selected topics relevant to the FUTUREVOLC project and its follow-up actions. The presentation will be streamed online, and available online after the workshop
