An extremely successful 3 day scientific and planning workshop was held at the Institut d’Auvergne du Développement des Territoires de Clermont-Ferrand. Researchers in geology and volcanology from the Université Blaise Pascal, the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University met to report on the preliminary results of ongoing research and to discuss future projects.
The Vice-Presidents, Research from SFU (Dr Joy Johnson) and UBC (Dr John Hepburn) joined the President of UBP (Dr Mathias Bernard) to sign Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) between the three universities. One result of this is the funding of four cotutelle Ph.D. fellowships. The projects for these will be determined in mid-July, 2015.
