Central Building, N. Plastira 100, Heraklion at 08:30 a.m.

Your participation will contribute to better conclusions and results
In case of interest please send the registration form attached until 12/4
English is the formal language of the workshop

The Scenario Workshop is organised in order to discuss different scenarios on possible earthquake events, especially in three seismic prone countries, Greece, Cyprus and Italy. Possible scenarios and contingency plans from different European countries will be demonstrated, to facilitate the dialogue and exchange of experiences between different stakeholders from different fields.

Furthermore, a multi-dimensional approach of after seismic preparedness will take part in the context of the workshop, mainly about evacuation, shelters and international cooperation.

We hope that the discussions will lead to realistic scenarios and conclusions that could boost preparedness potential and contribute to better plans, ICT tools and training courses.

The Speakers are members of both the local and the international scientific community as well as experts from different fields.

The Scenario Workshop is organized by Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas on April 19th, 2016 at FORTH, in Heraklion Crete, Greece.
