Real-time Earthquake Risk Reduction for a Resilient Europe

Project description

A highly systemic study of seismic risks

Earthquakes represent a challenging issue among earth-scientists, engineering-scientists, computer scientists, and social scientists, despite the many technological developments that permit better knowledge on seismic coherence. Soon, earthquakes will be assessed as a dynamic risk. The EU-funded RISE project perceives dynamic risk to be related to soil variations, the physical features of an area and population density. Yet other factors such as changes with time or vicinity of seismic activity are also included in the concept of dynamic risk. The project suggests a wide range of synchronised actions concerning prevention, data information, rapid evaluation of damages, recovery and restoration actions. A multidisciplinary group of scientists in engineering, IT, geology and sociology from 13 countries will be involved in the project.
