Work Package 6

Communication Strategies.

This is one of the key points of Mia-Vita project. It represents 13\% of the total effort. IST, INESC-ID and KELL are the main contributors to this task. This work package includes mainly staff involvement and acquisition of the required equipments. The main target volcano will be Fogo, as INMG critically needs telecommunication equipment to improve efficiency of its volcano observation duties. In order to wave as much possible dissemination as possible dissemination costs and to be able to reach regions without strong telecommunication infrastructure, WP6 will take advantage of the GEONETCast initiative.
