Mission

To investigate risk to society and infrastructure from earthquakes and other natural hazards.

Disaster Reduction Goal

EPICentre provides a forum for multi-disciplinary research into risk from natural hazards and disaster risk reduction. Effective mitigation requires a good understanding of the components of risk (hazard, exposure and vulnerability) within the context of the characteristics of the society at risk. Improved understanding of risk requires a multi-disciplinary approach combining disciplines such as science, engineering, social science and psychology.
