All members of the SLATE network (beneficiaries, partner organisations, ESRs as well as interested colleagues, invited guests and key note speakers) will participate in four Joint Annual Workshops. Each of these week-long workshops will have a tailor-made layout according to their specific, theme-related goals:
- Introduction / Kick-off
- Pre-failure (preconditioning)
- Post failure dynamics and tsunami modelling
- Risk assessment, frequency & societal aspects
The workshops allow the ESR students to present and discuss their own research work (i.e. concepts, results, working hypotheses, further steps) with all SLATE members, thus providing a platform for cross-disciplinary discussions and fast-tracking dissemination. Key note speakers from different sectors will deliver additional knowledge and further information linked to the SLATE project, while technical workshops and expert courses as well as field excursions will provide high-level training opportunities.
