Abstract:

Encouraging property owners and individuals to adopt mitigation measures to improve the resilience of their buildings and equipments to seismic hazard has been a major challenge in many earthquake-prone countries. Few business leaders are aware of the fragility of their supply chains or other critical systems due to earthquake hazard. Bridging the gap between research production and research use is another crucial challenge for the earthquake risk research process. The KnowRISK project outcome is aimed at encouraging the proactive engagement of multi-stakeholders (community at large, schools, business community and local govern-ment groups) undertaking non-structural mitigation measures that will minimize earthquake losses to individuals and communities. Engaging stakeholders, taking into account their needs and inputs to maintain critical and urgent business activities, can contribute to the research findings and ensure that our data collection is thorough and complete. Engagement with stakeholders, during the whole process can lead to improved outcomes and for the development of viable solutions, for business and society, because of stakeholder’s role and influence within the organizations.

Funding Information: Acknowledgments. This work was carried out in the framework of the KnowRISK project (Know your city, Reduce seISmic risK through non-structural elements), co-financed by the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (Grant agreement ECHO/SUB/2015/718655/PREV28), with partial support from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) and Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia Civil (LNEC) from Portugal; Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (Italy) and the Earthquake Engineering Research Centre (EERC) from University of Iceland. The KnowRISK project gratefully acknowledges the assistance of the following public and private entities for their outstanding contribution of time and expertise, namely CP Comboios de Portugal, CTT Correios de Portugal, EDP - Energias de Portugal, EPAL - Grupo Águas de Portugal, IKEA Portugal, Infraestruturas de Portugal, Jerónimo Martins, Metropolitano de Lisboa, NOS communications and entertainment group, PT-Altice, Siemens, SONAE MC and the collaboration of the Laboratorio di Storia e Comunicazione della Scienza (DOS) of the Ferrara University. The earthquake field missions which took place during the course of KnowRISK, were also helpful and essential to the authors for the study of the causes of non-structural damage.
