RISE (Integrated networks for the surveillance of sismic events and exchanges)

Countries: France, Italy
Border(s): France-Italy-Monaco,
Alps-Mediterranean Euroregion,
European programme(s):
Interreg IIIA - France-Italy (ALCOTRA)

Lead partner: Regione Autonoma Valle d’Aosta

The map of seismicity of the western Alps shows that the distribution of earthquakes is shared between France, Italy and Switzerland. So, an effective management of the seismic crises requires an integration of the networks of seismic surveillance and the networks of information exchange. The project aims at developing the exchanges in real time between the Italian and French seismic networks for an integrated management of the cross-border seismic events.

Project goals

RISE has for objective to update and to improve the seismic evaluation in the French-Italian cross-border zone, through the installation of new stations and the implementation of new procedures for the exchange of signals and seismic data in real time.
