The EUCENTRE Foundation has the scope of promoting, supporting and sustaining research and education in the field of seismic risk mitigation. To accomplish this, the following target activities areas have been identified:
- applied research in the field of earthquake engineering, with a view to improve existing practise in assessment and reduction of seismic vulnerability and risk;
- support work towards the development of guidance documents for both practising engineers and governing bodies, bringing international state-of-the-art into national design codes and regulations;
- training of engineers and technicians in the field of earthquake engineering, with specialisation in areas such as seismology, geology, geotechnical engineering, material response, structural analysis and design, vulnerability assessment and emergency management;
- scientific and technological consultancy, at both national and international levels, always in the field of earthquake engineering.
