    earthquake; heritage; risk; digitalization; resilient community

  • Brief description of your expertise / expertise you are looking for:

    We are structural engineers dealing with all aspects of structural modelling and structural response. In addition, we are doing a digitalization of heritage structures with an aim to achieve a better social perception of a built environment. This is particularly important in the seismically active regions. Lately, we are trying to implement emerging technologies (UAV, laser scanning, thermal and spectral cameras, etc.) in the process of defining seismic risk. Last year we were heavily involved in the assessment of earthquake-damaged buildings and neighbourhoods in Croatia and we are offering our knowledge in the following aspects: immediate actions after a disaster (from decision-making to on-site operation), structural assessment and renovation, social and political response, engineers perspectives, human behaviour after a disaster (different point of views: engineers, policymakers, citizens, media), preparedness vs. response, etc. Please feel free to contact us about your areas of interest and whether we can be of assistance.

  • Brief description of your project / the project you would like to join:

    We want to join a research and/or application type of project oriented at the digitalization of the built environment and social perception of the importance of preserving cultural heritage with digitalization. We are also looking for a partner interested in societal preparedness and response to natural disasters such as an earthquake. As severe earthquakes hit Croatia, we want to apply the gathered knowledge on different social transformation aspects after a disaster. The use of digital platforms to build resilient and sustainable cities & regions and support of citizen engagement is something we want to participate in.
