CERS staff benefits from the experience of national and international research projects, some of which are still in progress.

Ongoing projects:

  • RO-RISK - national risk evaluation project

  • BIGSEES (Bridging the Gap between Seismology and Earthquake Engineering: from the seismicity of Romania towards a refined implementation of Seismic action EN1998-1 in earthquake resistant design of buildings) - financed by Scientific Research National Authority through PNCDI II, Program 4 - Partnership in priority areas – 2012-2015.

  • IPRED - International Platform for Reducing Earthquake Disaster, financed from 2007 by UNESCO and Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport of Japan; JICA research center from Turkey, Peru, Mexico, Chile, Indonesia etc. are involve  2007 – present.

  • ANDROID - Academic Network for Disaster Resilience to Optimize Educational Development, Erasmus academic network – 2011 – present.

Completed international projects:

  • JICA - Technical Cooperation Project for Seismic Risk Reduction on Buildings and Structures in Romania. The 7 million US$ started in 2002 after 4 years of negotiations after Technical University of Construction (UTCB) initiative sustained by Ministry of Regional Development and Romanian Government. This Japan Government Project granted to Romanian Government coincided with the celebration of 100 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
