This volume contains the papers presented at the two review meetings on the EC projects dealing with the Seismic Risk, which were held in Brussels, May 1996. The main objective of the meetings was to present the main results and achievements obtained under the ongoing EC research projects in this area. During the meetings, new developments were presented on the determination and hazard assessment, as well as studies of the seismic behaviour and vulnerability of major structures and buildings in the broad field of earthquake resistant construction and design for the mitigation of seismic risk. The need for the continuation of concerted research efforts in this field was pointed out. The intention of this programme is to promote such an interdisciplinary exchange covering the entire spectrum of activities from seismology and tectonics to geotechnical earthquake engineering and structural engineering as well as to perform case studies for instance on the socio-economical aspects.
