This paper outlines the research programme of the COST-C1 Seismic Working Group, focusing mainly on the aims and working methods. The ongoing and programmed work by the working group members is described. The general objective is to assess the seismic behaviour of civil engineering structures designed and/or constructed with semi-rigid connections. The resulting improvement of construction technologies and manufacturing should lead to a more competitive position for European industry in earthquake-prone zones, and the improvement of design codes, specifically Eurocode N.8 (EC8).
