About the project

Natural disasters are major issues for almost all countries in the world and a public policy concern of their strategies. In particular, Mexico and China are two of the most vulnerable countries, suffering regularly from earthquakes, floods and wildfires, among others. Meanwhile, for the European countries the approach to natural disasters is a big deal within its regional policy.

This project enables a tri-continental scientific collaborative work, having Asia and America bringing their research projects and tools through Europe?s policies, work and agenda and working on the development of numerical tools and open source software to face relevant issues problems related to natural disasters.

In our subject, computing simulation can supply outstanding benefits to the different regions and ultimately to the world, such as forecasting, depth analysis of causes, mitigation of their effects through more secure buildings, reliability and risk assessment.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme, Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES) under grant agreement n° 612607
