This project will improve the consortium capacity of assessment of volcanic hazards in Supersites of Southern Italy by
optimising and integrating existing and new observation/monitoring systems, by a breakthrough in understanding of volcanic
processes and by increasing the effectiveness of the coordination between the scientific and end-user communities. More
than 3 million of people are exposed to potential volcanic hazards in a large region in the Mediterranean Sea, where two
among the largest European volcanic areas are located: Mt. Etna and Campi Flegrei/Vesuvius.
