Education and Training



Since the 2017/2018 academic year the Chair has organized and launched a new International Academic Master Degree on “Geoengineering” (GEM), totally in English language, with the joint competences of the all core members of the Chair. GEMs’s mission is to train experts on prevention, management and mitigation of geo-hydrological risks.


As part of the international training promoted by the ICL within the framework of the IPL and ISDR activities, the Chair has also contributed to the publication of two interactive volumes, Landslide Dynamics - ISDR-ICL Landslide Interactive Teaching Tools: Volume 1 (Fundamentals, Mapping and Monitoring) and Volume 2 (Testing, Risk Management and Country Practices).


At an European level the Chair has also made a contribution to the "Science for Disaster Risk Management 2017", by the Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Center of the Joint Research Center, a leading scientific report representing a contribution to the Science and Technology Roadmap in the context of the Sendai Partnership 2015-2025.


Several conferences, workshops and lectures have been organized, aiming at promoting a knowledge sharing network, through capacity building and dissemination. Training were addressed to academics, scientific organizations, Italian and foreign students (see the Events section).
