RISE in brief

Earthquakes are the deadliest natural hazard. Developing tools and measures to reduce future human and economic losses is the aim of RISE. RISE stands for Real-time earthquake rIsk reduction for a reSilient Europe and is a three-year project financed by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission. It started in September 2019 and will end in February 2023. RISE is coordinated by ETH Zurich, it brings together 19 organisations from across Europe and five international partners.



RISE Annual Meeting in Florence

The RISE annual meeting took place from 11-13 May in Italy. After the last time the RISE community met in person at the kick-off meeting in 2019, this conference took on a special significance. For many, it was a great reunion after more than two years and, for others, the possibility to finally meet in person. It was an intense 2.5 days in Florence with many presentations from the different work packages, discussion rounds, interactive sessions, and a poster fair. In addition to the official programme, the joint coffee breaks, lunches, and dinners also provided great opportunities for a lively exchange. A magnitude 3.7 earthquake, which we all felt during the conference dinner, was an exciting experience in real-time. A meeting that we will not forget so soon!
