The objective of VERTIGO is ?to improve career perspectives of ESRs in both public and private sectors, thus adding to their intersectoral employability?. With training-through-research projects on open questions related to volcanic ash we will equip the next generation of European researchers with an innovative, multidisciplinary background for careers in academia, applied research, private sector and risk mitigation entities. The VERTIGO Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be trained in the physical pro cesses during explosive eruptions, the physico-chemical processes in the eruption plume and the atmosphere, numerical approaches to understand volcanic processes and identify the impact of volcanic ash on various aspects of today?s and future life. Additi onally, ESRs will gain insights into how the private sector or other potential future employers (e.g., volcano observatories, civil protection, volcanic ash advisory centres) respond to volcanic ash related questions.
One ESR will be hosted by NILU.
