VT-1: Hazard Identification and Impact Mitigation

The Conference is organized by Frederick Research Center (FRC) as part of the ISTOS project. The Conference will address the project’s main objective to look into the structural safety and resilience of buildings and infrastructure when facing natural hazards like earthquakes, floods, and forest fires.

Presentations will focus on Natural Disasters and Civil Infrastructure Safety, including the effects of climate change on natural disasters. Insights and best practices from countries such as Cyprus, Italy, and Greece will be shared. Additionally, the Conference will shed light on the joint effort to set up a Research Center of Excellence in Cyprus, focusing on disaster risk reduction and management of natural hazards.

The ISTOS project is an initiative by four European Universities; Frederick Research Center (FRC) and the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) in Cyprus, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) and its Research Unit of Soil Dynamics and Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering – SDGEE in Greece and the University of Naples Federico II (UNINA) via its PLINIVS Study Centre PLINIVS-LUPT, in Italy. It was initiated in November 2020, funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme (H2020-WIDESPREAD-2018-2020).
