It is coordinating the REAKT (Towards real-time earthquake risk reduction) project and the CLUVA (CLimate change and Urban Vulnerability in Africa). Among the others, it is partner of the following projects: SYNER-G (Systemic Seismic Vulnerability and Risk Analysis for Buildings, Lifeline Networks and Infrastructures Safety Gain); SAFELAND (Living with Landslide Risk in Europe); GEISER (Geothermal Engineering Integrating Mitigation of Induced Seismicity in Reservoirs); MATRIX (New Multi-HAzard and MulTi-RIsK Assessment MethodS for Europe); NERA (Network of European Research Infrastructures for Earthquake Risk Assessment and Mitigation).
