IRSES-MEDYNA Granada Final Meeting & Geodynamic Seminars

As plan in the DoW as one of the project Milestones, the final MEDYNA meeting took was organized in the premises of the coordinator CSIC partner at the Instituto Andaluz de Ciencias de la Tierra from 15 to 16 November 2017. The meeting covered all the different tasks of MEDYNA WP with a special focus on WPs 1-3. The meeting goal was to disseminate the work of the IRSES-MEDYNA ESRs and had a dedicated session for the presentation of their research. It was attended by MEDYNA ERs and 20 invited ERs from different partner and beneficiary institutions that presented their results of their research as seconded staff in different institutions. In addition, several keynote speakers were invited including ERs from different participant MEDYNA institutions and external renowned experts in Mediterranean and N. Africa geology such as Dr. Claudio Faccenna (IRSES-MEDYNA external advisor; Roma TRE University) and Dr. Jean-Paul Liégeois (Royal Museum for Central Africa, Belgium). More information about the program and proceedings volume is provided below.
