20-23 June 2022 / METIS Summer School on Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis (PSHA)

The Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Foundation and Scuola Universitaria Superiore (IUSS) di Pavia – in the context of the METIS – jointly organized a summer school on probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA). The school, tailored to PhD and postdoctoral students, took place at the GEM premises in Pavia from June 20th and June 23rd, 2022. About twenty students from European (e.g., Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, North Macedonia, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom) and overseas universities (e.g., Saudi Arabia, Canada) successfully attended the event.

13-14 June 2022 / Part 2 Code_aster / salome_meca training

This was the second Code_Aster training session dedicated to seismic analysis. This was held onsite at EDF R&D Paris – Saclay.

8-9 June 2022 / METIS Summer School on Seismic Fragility

The METIS Summer School on Seismic Fragility, was held at Athens (Greece). It was organised by the Institute of Steel Structures at the Zografou Campus of the National Technical University of Athens.

The first day focused on methodologies and approaches for seismic fragility assessment, especially as it pertains to high-importance infrastructure, such as nuclear power plants. Issues of record and intensity-measure selection, as well as industry-standard approaches will be discussed.

The second day comprised practical sessions with hands-on training via Excel, Matlab, and Python, using simple tools to perform data-fitting and derive fragilities.

6-7 June 2022 / METIS plenary meeting hosted by NTUA

The 3rd METIS plenary meeting took place from June 6th – 7th in Athens, Greece, hosted by partner NTUA. The first day of the meeting, the WP leaders presented their updates and milestones while the second day was dedicated to working meetings and technical focus sessions on site response analysis, aftershocks in PRA and  METIS case study.

31 May - 2 June 2022 / SIGMA2 Closing Symposium

This meeting presented an overview of scientific results obtained in the program, their impact on current seismic hazard assessment and earthquake engineering practice, and perspectives for future developments.

30 May - 3 June 2022 / FISA 2022 & EURADWASTE'22

The Euratom Conferences FISA 2022 – EURADWASTE ’22, organized by the French Presidency of the Council of the EU and the European Commission, will take place from 30 May to 3 June 2022 in Lyon, France. The main objective is to present progress and key achievements of the Euratom research and training projects carried out since 2019 and to stimulate discussions on the state of play of research and innovations, challenges, and opportunities, as well as exploring future perspectives.

5-6 April 2022 / Part 1 Code_aster / salome_meca training

General introduction to code with sessions dedicated to nonlinearities and structural elements modelling.

22-23 Nov 2021 / METIS project plenary

This was the second plenary meeting, following the first one that was held fully virtually in April 2021. It was a hybrid project meeting (mix of in-person and virtual participants) held over two days 22nd-23rd November 2021 and attended by 50 participants. Since the start of the project, this is the first meeting which has been held in-person.
