Call for Request for Proposals (RfPs)

As the tragedy in Haiti unfolds, the Global Earthquake Model has stated that its motivation to make GEM a success has increased even more. GEM has called upon international consortia to get more countries, organisations and individuals involved and invites involvement by responding to GEM Request for Proposals (RfPs).

On 18 January 2010, GEM issued five RfPs for Global Components within its Risk Module, with target budgets ranging from 300,000 - 900,000 euros;

  1. GEM Ontology & Taxonomy
  2. Inventory Data Capture Tools
  3. Global Exposure Database
  4. Global Earthquake Consequences Database
  5. Global Vulnerability Estimations methods


GEM invites international consortia to respond to these calls. The deadline for submission of proposals is 18 March 2010 at 0:00 CET. The GEM Secretariat will aim to facilitate contact between institutions for the creation of international consortia. Proposals will be subject to peer review, and will be selected by GEM’s Governing Board, with awards expected in July 2010.
