We have received final confirmation from the INQUA commission that EDITH will be funded and we are excited to have the opportunity to bring together a group of like-minded scientists to tackle some of the big questions in earthquake science.
For the next three years, we will have annual meetings, as well as other activities, to bring together a range of scientists, across disciplines, career stages and countries.
For our first kick-off meeting, we want to take an interactive approach and provide plenty of opportunities for informal interactions and discussions. We are planning a kick-off meeting in the middle of April 2021 . Given the current coronavirus situation, we still do not know the location but it will be probably held in Europe; more details will come as the current situation evolves.
