The short-course comprised field trips to the  Garrotxa volcanic zone in North-Eastern Spain,  lectures  and presentations on the work undertaken  by the VUELCO research consortium. The course  was aimed at  post-graduate students, volcano observatory personnel and other professionals with an interest in dealing with pre-eruptive stages of volcanic activity.  Although not exclusively, the focus of the lectures will be on pre-eruptive processes, scenario forecasting and volcanic crises management at monogenetic fields.
