Seismic Cities

Seismic Cities is an inter-disciplinary research project funded by the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) as part of its Global Challenges Research Fund. The long-term aim of the project is to address the sustainable cities and communities challenge in urban regions prone to earthquake hazard by increasing resilience to such seismic shocks. We believe that bringing together diverse actors with a focus on a specific “Seismic City” is a powerful mechanism to achieve this.
