  • EPSRC-GCRF Announcement 27 April 2017 PREPARE (Enhancing PREParedness for East African Countries through Seismic Resilience Engineering) is a 3-year Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)-Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) project between May 2017 and April 2020 (total award value of £1.38M). It tackles the global challenge of improving the earthquake disaster preparedness for East African countries by developing integrated earthquake impact assessment tools in close partnerships with local governmental and academic institutions. The project addresses the key scientific challenges in characterising the earthquake rupture potential in the East African Rift zone and applies advanced seismic resilience engineering methods to evaluate seismic vulnerability of unreinforced masonry structures in East Africa (both experimentally and numerically) and to develop effective low-cost solutions for enhanced community resilience.
