ECR-Net: IAVCEI’s Early-Career Researchers Network
A lively atmosphere as early career and senior volcanologists network at a traditional Japanese restaurant at the IAVCEI General Assembly in Kagoshima in July 2013.
The IAVCEI ECR-Net is a global group of volcanology researchers dedicated to connecting Early-Career Researchers in volcanology and related subdisciplines worldwide.

The ECR-Net Initiative
The IAVCEI Early-Career Researchers Network (ECR-Net) was established during the IAVCEI 2013 conference in Kagoshima (Japan) by a group of Early-Career enthusiasts and then-IAVCEI President Ray Cas, in order to (1) support career development, (2) form an active network and (3) coordinate specific activities for early-career volcanologists. Since then, the ECR-Net working group has held several social meetings, interacted with IAVCEI’s Executive Committee, set up ECR discussion platforms on social media, and prepared an early-career dedicated programme for the IAVCEI Assembly in Portland in August 2017.

As a result of an international collaborative project called VolFilm short films on volcanic hazards and their impacts are now available to view download.
These public information and educational films are the first in a planned series and cover pyroclastic flows and lahars with English, French and Spanish versions. The films have been produced under the auspices of IAVCEI and Global Volcano Model (GVM) and funded from a variety of sources but principally by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and DfID (UK). The project partnership includes: Bristol University (UK), the British Geological Survey (UK), GNS Science (New Zealand), Goma Volcano Observatory, Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (France), the University of East Anglia (UK), Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (Italy), the Meteorological of Vanautu, the Seismic Research Centre, University if the West Indies (Trinidad), The Montserrat Volcano Observatory, the US Geological Survey, Instituto Geofisico at Escuela Politécnica Nacional (IG-EPN), Ecuador and the General Directorate of Mineral Research and Exploration (Turkey).
There are plans for six more films on hazards (ash, volcanic gas and lavas) and translation into further languages and also films of personal experiences by people affected by volcanic hazards.
