One of the missions of IAVCEI is to support the dissemination of the volcanological and geochemical knowledge. In this framework, IAVCEI promotes and economically supports scientific meetings, workshops and schools aimed to increase the cultural exchange though the international community.
IAVCEI provides financial support only to scientific events in which all of the participants are IAVCEI members. If not currently IAVCEI members, participants can either become members or pay an additional equivalent fee at the time of registration that will be subsequently transferred from the organisers to IAVCEI. Information on membership fees can be found on IAVCEI website (www.iavcei.org).
The financial support will be allocated after official request from the organising person/committee, using the form downloadable from this page (at the bottom). The amount of the financial support will be decided case by case based on scientific significance and provided that the financial situation of the IAVCEI allows fund assignments. Typical sizes of financial supports are (they must be intended as examples):
- Workshops, meetings, schools with over 500 participants 10,000 Euro
- Workshops, meetings, schools with 100-500 participants 4,000 Euro
- Workshops, meetings, schools with less than 100 participants 2-3000 Euro
