The George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES)
The George E. Brown Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation is a National Science Foundation–funded consortium of academic, governmental, industry and international organizations dedicated to the advancement of research and innovations that promote earthquake safety and prevent and minimize damage caused by seismic events.
The NEEScomm (NEES Community and Communications) Team includes partners from the University of Washington, University of Texas at Austin, University of Kansas, San Jose State University, the University of Michigan, and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The team is committed to operating transparently and nurturing stakeholder participation in the management of NEES. We will work together with NSF and the sites to ensure the trust of the stakeholder community.
National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP)
The National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) leads the federal government’s efforts to reduce the fatalities, injuries, and property losses caused by earthquakes. Congress established NEHRP in 1977, directing that four federal agencies coordinate their complementary activities to implement and maintain the program. These agencies are FEMA, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Science Foundation, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
