Mission

EERI is a national, non-profit, technical society of engineers, geoscientists, architects, planners, public officials, and social scientists, including researchers, practicing professionals, educators, government officials, and building code regulators. EERI aims to reduce earthquake risk by advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering; by improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political, and cultural environment; and by advocating comprehensive and realistic measures.

Disaster Reduction Goal

A world in which potential earthquake losses are widely understood and in which prudent steps have been taken to address those risks.
