The MEDiterranean Supersite Volcanoes (MED-SUV) is a FP7 project born under the European Community call "ENV.2012.6.4-2 "Long-term monitoring experiments in geologically active regions of Europe prone to natural hazards: the Supersite concept" - FP7-ENV-2012-two-stage – of 20 July 2011. MED-SUV, which started on 1 June 2013, is just on its third and last year of activities. The project has focused on pushing forward the concept of the Geo-Supersites promoted by GEO-GEOSS, by carrying out

MED-SUV is structured in 8 operational Work Packages (WPs) among which WP1 deals with the project coordination and management and WP8 with the dissemination of the project outcomes. The other 6 WPs are involved in RTD activities, and in particular WP2 and WP3 are dedicated to the design and implementation of new instrumentation and of the project e-infrastructure, respectively. WP4 and WP5 are where the volcanic research activities are carried out at Campi Flegrei/Vesuvius and Mt. Etna, respectively. WP6 is fully dedicated to volcano hazard modelling. WP7 represents the framework in which the novel achievements are validated by tests carried out at two other European volcanic systems, i.e. Piton de la Fournaise and Azores. Throughout the second year, many of the activities foreseen in the project work plan were carried out including the implementation of the architecture of an e-infrastructure for data access, development of new tools and instrumentation for volcano monitoring, research experiments for better understanding of the volcanic feeding systems and eruptive activity, data analysis and modelling for volcanic hazard assessment, and dissemination activities to promote the project results among the scientific community and to foster people awareness of volcanic phenomena. At the present, the MED-SUV consortium has already moved on with the activities scheduled for the third year. Indeed, aside t [...]
