Post-earthquake Disaster and Risk Management through a Rapid Response Framework for Industrial Zones in Turkey

This project is funded by the British Council through Newton Fund, and in collaboration with the Concrete and Earthquake Engineering Research Group at the University of Sheffield.

The overall aim of the project is to develop, for the first time, a rapid seismic risk assessment and management framework for industrial facilities using a systems approach to significantly mitigate economic and societal losses and environmental pollution in future earthquakes, not only in Turkey but also in other developing countries. This is also expected to accelerate economic development and enhance societal welfare in the long term.
