Abstract

This communication deals with the main features of research in the field of earthquakes in the perspective of the EC research programmes. In addition, other EU actions are highlighted. The main elements of the research in relation to earthquakes are covered by the specific programme Environment and climate under the fourth Framework Programme (1994-98), while some research areas are covered by other specific programmes and are also within the direct research of the Joint Research Centre. This communication is intended to highlight the range of research activities within the EC-funded research, and to demonstrate the positive measures currently operative in the EC as an effective means to mitigate risks posed, by the threat of major earthquakes, to the safety of the citizen. The aspects of international cooperation are outlined and some priorities of research cooperation with Japan are identified.
