A common seismic risk culture

POCRISC is a European R & D project for which Deveryware is an official partner. Led by a Franco-Spanish team, it aims to promote a common seismic risk culture in the Pyrenees*.

The regions involved are Catalonia in Spain and Occitania and Andorra in France.

 

Objectives and action plan

The project has 3 distinct objectives:

  • to provide tools that assist decision-making by the relevant authorities during shocks (action 1 & 2)
  • to facilitate information sharing (action 3 & 5)
  • to determine the vulnerability of regions to seismic risks (action 4).

Plan d'action POCRISC

 

Deveryware contribution

Through POCRISC, we are developing a management information platform that contains information about buildings, their geolocation, their existing graphic documentation, as well as the use of forms that are currently available in France and Spain.

The platform will allow management of this information from smart phones, making it available to technicians responsible for completing post-seismic diagnostics, as well as maintenance, emergency response and building recovery technicians.

POCRISC is due to be completed in January 2021. To ensure conclusive results, the European Regional Development Fund has financed 65% of the budget, more than one million Euros. *

*Part of the Interreg V-A Spain-France-Andorra Programme project (POCTEFA 2014-2020)

Expected results*

  • practical cases to learn how to manage seismic crises in a collaborative manner
  • the development of mobile applications for emergency professionals that can assess vulnerabilities in a territory and areas affected by an earthquake
  • the setting up an automatic earthquake warning system
  • the creation of specifications for the construction and risk management industries.

*These tools will be tested by the French and Spanish emergency services during real life simulations and exercises.
