Final report – Joint Reconnaissance ReLUIS-EUCENTRE, Türkiye-Syria Earthquake 2023
Summary of the surveys
On May 9th to 12th , 24 technicians from Italian universities and centers of expertise and 11 technicians from METU or TED Universities in Ankara, carried out surveys on 204 school buildings (primary and secondary schools) located in the areas of Hatay, Maras, Antep and Adana provinces. Technicians were organized into 7 working groups inspecting the different areas. Out of the total 204 buildings, 190 buildings were fully inspected, while the remaining 14 buildings were found to have been demolished (10 buildings) or unified (4 buildings).
Joint Reconnaissance ReLUIS-EUCENTRE, Türkiye-Syria Earthquake 2023
The Civil Protection Department has promoted an important technical-scientific activity in the areas affected by the earthquakes that occurred inTürkiye and Syria starting from 6 February this year, with a maximum magnitude of 7.8. In this context, two missions have been organised, one aimed at investigating the effects of the earthquake from a geological and seismological point of view and one aimed at investigating the structural response of the building stock.

Young Seismologists and Engineers Training Course (YSETC) at 3ECEES
September 12-16, 2022 – Bucharest, Romania
The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of the 3rd European Conference on Earthquake Engineering & Seismology (3ECEES) organizes in the period 12-16 September 2022 in Bucharest, at the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest (UTCB) and National Institute for Earth Physics (INFP) the “Young Seismologists and Engineers Training Course (YSETC)”.
Workshop DPC-ReLUIS Projects
The closing Workshop of the three-year DPC_ ReLUIS 2019-2021 project and the kick off of the new DPC_ ReLUIS 2022-2024 project was held on July 5-6 in the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Architecture "Valle Giulia" of the Sapienza University of Rome.
The Head of the Civil Protection Department, Fabrizio Curcio, the Deputy Head Titti Postiglione and the Director of Office II - Technical-scientific activities for the prediction and prevention of risks of the DPC, Fausto Guzzetti, brought their greetings to the whole community of the researchers of the ReLUIS network.
A moment of confrontation, motivation, proposals and ideas on seismic and structural engineering at the service of the country, with the researchers who participate in the activities of ReLUIS - Center of Competence of the Department of Civil Protection.
The works were preceded by the ReLUIS Researchers' Assembly. Two days with over 300 participants, many of whom in presence.
Lots of energy and skills on current issues of great interest to our country!
