Scope: This is a training course on the use of VOLCANBOX. VOLCANBOX is a specific methodology (see Marti, 2017) and a set of e-tools ( Felpeto et al., 2010; Sobradelo et al 2013, 2014; Bartolini et al., 2013; 2018; Scaini et al 2014) to conduct long- and short-term volcanic hazard assessment which were developed as part of the VeTOOLS project, funded by Civil Protection Unit of the European Unión, by the Group of Volcanology of Barcelona (CSIC, Spain). VOLCANBOX consists of an integrated software multi-platform specially designed to assess volcanic hazard, as well as  assess and manage volcanic risk. This system facilitates the interaction and cooperation between scientists and Civil Protection Agencies in order to share, unify, and exchange procedures, methodologies and technologies to effectively reduce the impacts of volcanic disasters by improving assessment and management of volcanic risk. For this reason, this course is addressed to post-graduate, doctorate and post-doctorate students, members of volcano observatories, and Civil Protection experts interested or working on volcanic hazard assessment and management of volcanic crisis. The course will offer a description of the general concepts and methodologies that  are behind VOLCANBOX and will train participants in the use  of the different tools that it contains. offering some examples on their use and on the limits of its applicability.
