Seismic Hazard, Risk and Tectonics of Iran : ISTerre Knowledge Transfer
Laboratoire(s)/équipe(s) du LabEx OSUG impliqué(e.s) : ISTerre
Porteur du projet : James Hollingsworth
This multi-disciplinary research project takes advantage of a recent improvement in political relations between France and Iran to re-establish collaborative links with leading Earth Science institutions (thus, building on new nationally coordinated efforts such as the TRIGGER GDRI). Several different research projects are presented, which collectively address aspects of the tectonic evolution and associated seismic hazard and risk of Iran, spanning a broad range of timescales. We seek financial support (complementing additional science funding from a separate Labex+ project), to facilitate travel of several Iranian students and researchers to Grenoble, to train in new techniques, and strengthen scientific collaborations. Additional support is requested to host two separate workshops in Iran : (1) to train researchers in new techniques for seismic risk analysis, and (2) to promote scientific cooperation between French and Iranian Earth Scientists.
