Where to access earthquake risk data?

The risk.EFEHR platform hosted by the EUCENTRE provides interactive access to various datasets used to build the earthquake risk model for Europe. The platform includes documentation on all of the datasets and models and offers scientific support on the development of the models and seismic risk computations:

  • exposure data and models for European residential, commercial and industrial buildings and their occupants;
  • fragility and vulnerability models for classes of European buildings;
  • site response data and models at European scale;
  • earthquake scenario models;
  • the newly released European Seismic Risk Model (ESRM20);
  • documentation and scientific support on all of the datasets and models;
  • web services for automated access to the data and models.

The scientific data is accessible on the publicly available EFEHR GitLab repository for free download.
