N.24 - December 2009 low or high resolution file

Our new issue focuses on Educational Initiatives in the Euro-Med zone. Discover projects and actions taken in Italy, Switzerland, UK, Ireland and France to spread knowledge and teach seismology in schools.
Also in our Newsletter, updates on major projects (NERIES, QUEST etc.), latest news from the Mediterranean Region and recent earthquakes reports (L'Aquila, Gjorica).
And do not miss our introduction to SHERPA!

N.23 - April 2009 low or high resolution file

Here's the brand new issue of the EMSC Newsletter. Over 20 contributors, 56 pages and a new visual identity - have a look and tell us what you think! The file is available in high and low resolution. Please note that a paper version of the Newsletter has been sent out to members and contributors this week. We wish you a pleasant (and instructive!) read.
