Seismic risk

The BRGM's website on seismic risk prevention, with the support of the Ministry in charge of Sustainable Development : www.planseisme.fr

Launched on December 19th, 2012, as part of the Paris-Saclay project, the Institut SEISM is a scientific interest grouping created by the CEA, EDF, the Ecole Centrale Paris, the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Cachan and the CNRS. The institute's goal is to federate these partners' skills in the seismic risk field, and aims to become an international reference point in this field. In order to do so, the Institute works with fifty academics, and with a unique experimental instrument in Europe, the CEA's Tamaris test platform. The Institute also works with the simulation means of the research and development from EDF and other partners.
