The prevention and reduction of risks is a contribution to the 2030 agenda of the United Nations(open in new window). An important goal is sustainable cities and communities. The achievement of this target is at risk if negative impact of catastrophes is not properly reduced. The overall objective of this project is to develop and to apply diagnosis tools for a better understanding, assessment and management of seismic risk. The aim is to produce knowledge, advances, and applications beyond the state-of-the-art, in two major themes:
- Diagnosis and assessment of expected damage and, site effects in urban environments.
Although this proposal concerns earthquake disasters, the expected results go beyond seismic risk, being also relevant to increase the wellbeing, sustainability and resilience of mankind in regular conditions.
