This year the school is sponsored by Guralp Systems Ltd, Schlumberger, and the International Seismological Centre (ISC), who will also actively contribute to the training program.

The school will also address career-oriented topics through advice and discussions co-organised by Laura Parisi and Lucia Gualtieri as part of Early-Career Scientists initiatives of the Seismological Section of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
