METIS is a Horizon 2020 project whose mission is to develop and improve tools and methodologies employed in seismic safety assessments of nuclear reactors and translate this research into practice for industry use. The project will also develop common guidelines to facilitate periodic safety reviews, promote good practices under the Nuclear Safety Directive and enable risk-informed decision-making, and as a result, directly contribute to the safety and competitiveness of the European nuclear industry.
The Institute Static and Dynamics of Structures from the Rheinland-Pfälzische Technische Universität (RPTU) is hosting a training school on seismic probabilistic risk assessment (SPRA). The school, tailored to Master, Ph.D., and postdoctoral students, takes place at the RPTU premises in Kaiserslautern (Germany) from June 22nd and 23rd, 2023.
With this newsletter we invite you to learn more about the project’s latest developments and the partners’ achievements. Please check our recent advances to improve the seismic risk assessment analysis chain, from hazard and ground motion to site response, fragility, and risk quantification.
