ICARUS will develop innovative tools for urban impact assessment in support of air quality and climate change governance in the EU. This will lead to designing and implementing win-win strategies to improve the air quality and reduce the carbon footprint in European cities. An integrated approach will be used for air pollution monitoring and assessment combining ground-based measurements, atmosphe ...

EPOS Implementation Phase (EPOS IP)

Start date: Oct 1, 2015, End date: Sep 30, 2019,

The nations of Europe are distributed around some of the most complex and dynamic geological systems on the planet and understanding these is essential to the security of livelihoods and economic power of Europeans. Many of the solutions to the grand challenges in the geosciences have been led by European scientists – the understanding of stratigraphy (the timing and distribution of layers of sedi ...

Critical Infrastructures (CIs) provide essential goods and services for modern society; they are highly integrated and have growing mutual dependencies. Recent natural events have shown that cascading failures of CIs have the potential for multi-infrastructure collapse and widespread societal and economic consequences.Moving toward a safer and more resilient society requires improved and standardi ...

Rapid Analysis and Spatialisation Of Risk (RASOR) (RASOR)

Start date: Nov 11, 2013, End date: Jun 1, 2016,

The Rapid Analysis and Spatialisation Of Risk (RASOR) project will develop a platform to perform multi-hazard risk analysis to support the full cycle of disaster management, including targeted support to critical infrastructure monitoring and climate change impact assessment, exploiting internally produced and available services. RASOR adapts the newly developed 12m resolution TanDEM-X Digital Ele ...

The recent devastating earthquakes and associated tsunamis in Japan, Indonesia, and Haiti, which killed more than half a million people, highlighted how mankind is still far away from a satisfactory level of seismic risk mitigation. Among the regions around the Mediterranean Sea for which earthquakes represent a major threat to their social and economic development, the area around the Marmara Se ...

Strategies and tools for Real Time EArthquake RisK ReducTion (REAKT)

Start date: Sep 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2014,

Earthquakes are a serious threat for many European countries, particularly those around the Mediterranean Sea. In many cities exposed to high earthquake hazard, a substantial proportion of the population still lives in buildings that do not meet modern earthquake-resistant standards. Preventive actions, such as retrofitting of structures, are essential, but they are not sufficient and cannot be a ...

"European seismic engineering research suffers from extreme fragmentation of research infrastructures (RI) between countries and limited access to them by the S/T community of earthquake engineering, especially that of Europe’s most seismic regions. A 23-strong Consortium of the key actors in Europe’s seismic engineering research (including 3 industrial partners) addresses these problems in a sust ...

Services and Applications For Emergency Response (SAFER)

Start date: Jan 1, 2009, End date: Mar 31, 2012,

"SAFER aims at implementing preoperational versions of the Emergency Response Core Service. SAFER will reinforce European capacity to respond to emergency situations: fires, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, humanitarian crisis. The main goal is the upgrade of the core service and the validation of its performance with 2 priorities: First priority is the short term improvement o ...

"Earthquakes regularly occur throughout the world, frequently causing catastrophic harm and injury and always resulting in significant damage and widespread disorganization in the area. Modern society is increasingly vulnerable to external hazards, it is readily apparent that, in developed countries, although the numbers of victims of major earthquakes is tending to drop, the costs of the consequ ...

Deployment of Remote Instrumentation Infrastructure (DORII)

Start date: Feb 1, 2008, End date: Jul 31, 2010,

The DORII project aims to deploy e-Infrastructure for new scientific communities, where on the one hand the ICT technology is still not present at the appropriate level, but on the other hand it is demanded to empower its daily work. We deal with a group of scientific users, and this is a reference for DORII, with experimental equipment and instrumentation that are not integrated or integrated onl ...
