3rd Workshop on China-US Collaboration for Disaster Evolution/Resilience of Civil Infrastructure and Urban Environment

 

 

 


The most recent “3rd Workshop on China-US Collaboration for Disaster Evolution/Resilience of Civil Infrastructure and Urban Environment,” sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the National Natural Science Foundation of China, brought together researchers from both countries to Richmond Field Station located at University of California, Berkeley on August 13-14, 2012.   What began in 2010, the China-US Collaboration for Disaster/Resilience of Civil Infrastructure and Urban Environment has now resulted in 6 new joint projects strengthening the partnership to improve the disaster evolution/resilience of civil infrastructure and urban environment in both countries and around the world.

The meeting was built on the outcomes of the two previous collaborative workshops.  In addition to 6 keynote lectures from China and US representatives, participants engaged in working sessions structured around the topics of Simulation and Monitoring.   These collaborations have resulted in 6 new joint projects funded by NSF and NSFC. Details of the projects and a final  report of the third workshop will be shared via the NEEShub in the near future  In the meantime, final reports for both previous workshops can be found at http://nees.org/announcements/2ndworkshopchinaus

The purpose of this workshop was to:
(i) Generate opportunities for research collaboration using facilities and data exchange,
(ii) Discuss testbeds where researchers can engage in the validation of models and simulation tools, and
(iii) Provide a forum where researchers and funding agencies from China and the USA can discuss and promote synergistic collaboration, as well as the linkages necessary to facilitate this collaboration.

The ultimate objective of this workshop is to establish partnerships to improve the disaster evolution/resilience of civil infrastructure and urban environment in both countries and around the world. Representing NEES researchers and NEEScomm at the workshop were:
