  • INQUIMUS into ACTION Workshop

    Latest News INQUIMUS into ACTION Workshop READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ GEM’s Paul Henshaw, Director of Technology and Development, delivered a presentation titled “OpenQuake: informing Disaster Risk Reduction Policy through open and collaborative Earthquake Risk Assessment” during the 4th INQUIMUS workshop held from 19th-21st September at Eurac Research, Bolzano, Italy. The organizers - the Department of Geoinformatics-Z_GIS at the University of Salzburg, Austria and the European Academy of Bozen/Bolzano (EURAC) - selected GEM’s presentation as one of the state-of-the-art talks (SOTA) for this year’s theme: “INQUIMUS into ACTION - How can scientific assessments inform decisions for problem-solving in practice”. Paul discussed how GEM promotes an integrated understanding of earthquake risk through a 3-step scientific framework composed of seismic hazard, physical risk and social vulnerability assessments using the OpenQuake engine - GEM’s state-of-the-art seismic hazard and risk computational software. He also emphasized the role of the OpenQuake Platform - a website that provides access to software, datasets, models and guidelines - on how these open tools and a collaborative approach promote stakeholder engagement and encourages risk mitigation actions. In addition, the presentation also highlighted GEM’s strategy of engaging end-users from the very beginning to ensure local conditions are reflected and outputs align with the needs of the local communities. During the discussion on how GEM used open tools to inform and contribute to the improvement of public policy, Paul said, “Throughout our work at GEM, the combination of open data, open models and open-source software have resulted in a powerful integrated workflow that permits transparent and repeatable calculations important not only for scientific credibility, but also for facilitating regulation compliance and community collaboration." The 4th INQUIMUS workshop also featured the works and experiences from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency and the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance, Germany (BBK).

Together, we are confident of developing better information on seismic risk, and delivering innovative tools and products for improved seismic risk assessment,” John Schneider – GEM Secretary General. GEM’s OpenQuake engine and its associated toolkits will enable PartnerRe to better evaluate the earthquake risk for their insurance clients worldwide. Like GEM, PartnerRe values open, transparent tools and models, which lead to a better understanding of the assumptions and sources of uncertainty that are essential in the evaluation and quantification of risks. Paul Della-Marta, Head of Catastrophe Research at PartnerRe said, “As a world leader in reinsurance, PartnerRe helps insurers create risk transfer solutions that provide financial protection from the devastating effects of earthquakes. By combining rich seismic data with our own deep understanding of earthquake risk, we can help our clients create more relevant and impactful reinsurance solutions that enable earthquake-hit areas to recover more quickly.” “This new partnership with GEM further strengthens our ability to fulfil that role. We are particularly impressed by GEM’s collaborative, interactive approach in working with its stakeholders, and are proud to support GEM in their goal of worldwide earthquake resilience”. GEM is set to formally welcome PartnerRe at its next Governing Board meeting in June this year. GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS No related contents 1/0

    Projects SERA Project Seismology and Earthquake Engineering Research Infrastructure Alliance for Europe (SERA) RELATED CONTENTS PROFILE Background The Seismology and Earthquake Engineering Research Infrastructure Alliance for Europe (SERA) aims to reduce the risk posed by natural and anthropogenic earthquakes based on innovative research and development projects. SERA will significantly improve the access to data, services and research infrastructures for scientists and other professionals. GEM's contributions focus on taxonomy and exposure of residential, commercial and industrial buildings in Europe; physical vulnerability assessment for buildings; integrated earthquake risk analysis using the risk assessment framework and OpenQuake software established by the Global Earthquake Model. SERA is a Horizon 2020-supported programme responding to the priorities identified in the topic INFRAIA-01-2016-2017 ‘Integrating Activities for Advanced Communities’. SERA involves 31 partners and 8 linked third parties in Europe. It started in May 2017 and will last for three years. Objectives The EUCENTRE-SERA project is collaborating closely with the GEM Foundation (Global Earthquake Model) to: develop a European Risk Modelling framework that brings together the strengths of previous projects such as SHARE, NERA and fills in the research gaps; integrate knowledge and data from other SERA working packages; and build on the risk assessment framework and software developed by GEM. Location Collaborators SERA is engaging 31 partners from 16 European countries. They all have leading expertise in the operation of experimental facilities, monitoring infrastructures, and data repositories in the fields of seismology, anthropogenic hazards or earthquake engineering. ( ) complete list Beneficiaries This program targets a wide spectrum of stakeholders, including governance (decision-makers/public authorities), industry (practitioners and professionals), academia (researchers and professors), and the European community in general.

  • Collaborative Risk Assessment for Volcanoes and Earthquakes (CRAVE) - Global Earthquake Model

    Projects CRAVE Project Collaborative Risk Assessment for Volcanoes and Earthquakes (CRAVE) RELATED CONTENTS PROFILE Background The need to better understand the existing earthquake and volcano risk led to the establishment of the Global Earthquake Model (GEM) and the Global Volcano Model (GVM) network. GEM, founded in Italy in 2009, has been developing open tools and models to calculate and communicate seismic hazard and risk worldwide. Similarly, the GVM network represents an international community aiming to provide systematic evidence, data and analysis of volcanic hazards and risk on national, regional and global scales working with monitoring institutions to implement the best science and DRR strategies. Both GEM and the GVM network are currently leading international efforts that aim to mitigate the adverse effects from these perils. South America and ASEAN regions have been the target of numerous studies in the last two decades. However, most of these studies only focused on one component of the risk problem (e.g. hazard, vulnerability). Such limitation prevents the development of a comprehensive risk profile to properly inform decision-makers. The CRAVE project, through the current GEM and GVM network tools will offer a timely and unique opportunity to advance the understanding of seismic and volcanic risk in the region. Objectives This project aims to develop a common framework for the assessment of the impact from earthquakes and volcanoes, with an application in three countries located around the Pacific Rim. The activities comprised in this project feature several events to bring together global partners with the mandate to calculate and communicate seismic and volcanic risk, as well as training events to increase the capacity of local institutions in the assessment of their hazard and risk. Location Collaborators This project includes several partners including the following: British Geological Survey; the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS); the University of Edinburgh; the Volcano Disaster Assistance Program (VDAP) of the United States Geological Survey (USGS); and key organizations from the region including: the Colombian Geological Survey; the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology;(PHIVOLCS); and Badan Geologi (Indonesia). Beneficiaries Direct beneficiaries include seismologists, volcanologist, engineers, and risk analysts. Indirect beneficiaries include the population from countries covered in this program, and the total global population at risk of seismic or volcanic events. Funding partner The CRAVE project is funded by the The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), an independent agency of the United States federal government that is primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign aid and development assistance.
