Members of the European training network SLATE (Submarine Landslides and their impact on European continental margins) have now exchanged views at a workshop in Bologna (Italy). About 30 scientists took part in lectures and excursions to old landslides.

SLATE is funded within the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie program (MSC) of the European Commission with almost 3.9 million Euros. Currently, 15 PhD students in SLATE study submarine landslides focusing on what triggered the event and what are the transport kinematics and those studying the hazard from submarine landslides themselves and derived tsunami to near and far field coast. There are 17 partners from seven European countries involved, including universities, research institutes and companies.
