Held in the European Crisis Management Laboratory, the Workshop brought together some of the most widely used modern seismic risk assessment tools and a number of Civil Protection authorities from countries of the European Civil Protection Mechanism. The objective was to demonstrate the use and capabilities of the tools, explore the possible use in near-real-time impact assessment and promote their use in risk planning and disaster response.
