Site-specific hazard studies for critical facilities have been driving Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis (PSHA) since its inception. Throughout the years, hazard analyses at regional and national levels incorporated many procedural and methodological advancements initially used in detailed, single-site investigations.
METIS (https://metis-h2020.eu/) is an EU Horizon 2020 project. One of its main goals is to develop and improve tools and methodologies employed in seismic safety assessments of nuclear reactors and translate this research into practice for industry use.
In this workshop, we aim to combine presentations illustrating some of the main achievements of METIS, particularly on the hazard side, with expositions describing recent methodological advancements relevant to site-specific studies.

The workshop will be hosted at “Centro Congressi Giovanni XXVII” (https://www.centrocongressibergamo.com/en/spazi/) in downtown Bergamo, Italy. Bergamo is a city located northeast of Milan, with good connections either by train or plane, due to its proximity to the airport.
METIS or Methods and Tools Innovation for Seismic Risk Assessment is a project that is part of the Safety margins determination for design basis-exceeding external hazards program funded by the European Commission.
