The Azores archipelago is exposed to important seismic and volcanic activity, as well as to the high recurrence of extreme meteorological phenomena, that are associated with some of the major landslide and flood events, responsible for some of the major catastrophes on the region. These factors make the Azores a natural laboratory of excellence for the development of studies in the field of Earth and Space Sciences. 

With the objective of promoting a Knowledge Society, the Research Institute for Volcanology and Risk Assessement (IVAR), in cooperation with the School of Sciences and Technology of the University of the Azores (FCT-UAc), offers Summer Courses, in the IVAR Academy, to learn about the geology of the Azores and the geological hazards that shaped our beautiful landscapes.​​​​​​
