Managing volcanic hazards requires the interaction of distinct stakeholders, including government and civil managers, scientific communities, local communities, media, industry, and the general public. These different groups create, share, and interpret knowledges about the natural event, which is then integrated into organisational practices and everyday lives. Difficulties arise when different perceptions of the natural event cannot be reconciled, and different groups interpret the available knowledge in different ways. Effective sharing of knowledge (scientific and non-scientific) requires a profound understanding of the multifaceted features that affect and shape human communication. It is well established that scientific information becomes useful, usable, and used when it belongs to a mutual knowledge exchange, where all stakeholders participate in the definition of what needs to be communicated, how and when. The aim of this workshop is to consolidate an interdisciplinary network capable of tackling risk communication issues from different points of view. Participants will be able to discuss communication strategies, identify priorities, devise exercises, and communication experiments to be tested in the field and explore different founding schemes to finance innovative interdisciplinary research on risk communication.
