Description de la formation
The is made of two parts: an intensive 9 weeks of lectures, laboratory excercises, field work and an individual research project.
The practical aspect of the training is organized over two weeks dedicated to interdisciplinary field work in regions with a potential risk such as the island of Vulcano in the southern part of Italy (volcanic eruption), flooding and landslide aspects are studied in Switzerland. For this part in the field, applicants must be in a good physical health as they will climb on the top of a volcano (from sea level to about 400 m a.s.l), be exposed to gas emissions (e.g. SO2) and walk in the altitude of the Swiss Alps.
- Risk management
- Volcanic risk
- Seismic risk
- Terrain instabilities
- Flood and climate related risk
A multidisciplinary approach to the assessment and management of risk from natural hazards, merging ideas from disciplines such as the physical and social sciences, engineering, and economics is taken.
- To educate participants on how to incorporate risk science into everyday reality in an attempt to reduce losses to an acceptable level.
- To train participants on how to communicate effectively with government agencies, media, public and private sectors before, during and after natural hazard events.
Conditions d’admissionMaster degree or a diploma of 5 years in various fields of Earth Sciences (i.e. Geology, Geography and Geotechnics), Civil Engineering, Land planning or other fields with relevant professional experience.
