Researchers from the University of Alicante participate, along with 21 other entities, in a European project to develop low-cost sensors that will detect parameters such as the intensity of an earthquake and the damage it has caused, which will allow a more efficient emergency management, by offering information in real time and in the format needed by public emergency services.
First meeting of the European project H2020
During the 13th and 14th of June, the first meeting of the European project H2020 was held to establish the tasks of each of the work teams. The meeting was held in Oslo and was attended by researchers from the University of Alicante, Sergio Molina Palacios and Juan José Galiana Merino.
Researchers Sergio Molina Palacios and Juan José Galiana Merino participate in the European project H2020 “Towards more Earthquake-resilient Urban Societies through a Multi-sensor-based Information System enabling Earthquake Forecasting, Early Warning and Rapid Response Actions (TURNkey)”.
TURNkey aims to make significant advances in the fields of Operational Earthquake Forecasting (OEF), Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) and the Rapid Response to Earthquakes (RRE), particularly when applying these systems in practice in Europe. More informatión.
