Work packages

In order to achieve the objectives of the project GEORISK, a series of specific activities and the appropriate time schedule are required, in order to ensure the normal completion of the project. In particular, the project will be implemented within five Working Packages:

Estimation of seismic risk for specific constructions – Application at school complexes in the region of the wider Eastern Corinthian Gulf

The main objective of WP1 is the development of an integrated methodology based on the most modern techniques for assessing seismic risk, determining and predicting seismic risk not on a scale of a wider region but on a scale of a building block or a building complex while taking into account local conditions and the particular characteristics of the structures. For the installation of the needed equipment, schools, that serve the objectives both as constructions and in terms of importance, will be selected. The pilot application will be in the active tectonic region of the Eastern Corinthian region and mainly in the urban centers, eg. Corinth, Loutraki, Kiato, Itea, etc. It also aims to form the appropriate anti-seismic background in the educational community, with the plan of providing information on a neighborhood scale. Finally, within the objectives is also the creation of infrastructure for the collection of macroseismic observations. These observations are collected in the context of the research objectives of the Geodynamic Institute. The efficiency of this infrastructure will be the result of the information provided by the public and the rise of the awareness of the population.
