Nau mai haere mai, Welcome to Ahuriri Napier and the 2022 QuakeCoRE Annual Meeting. 

It's so nice to be back together again in person following last year's abridged online version of the Annual Meeting over Zoom thanks to Covid-19.

It is with great pride in welcoming over 200 attendees from all over Aotearoa to the 2022 Annual Meeting in Ahuriri Napier, with representatives from: the major national Universities and Wānanga; various Crown Research Institutes; Government Ministries and National Agencies; Industry Members; members of the Plate Boundary Alliance; respected Member Bodies; Consulting firms; Civil Defence and Emergency Management Professionals; and of course, our Board Members, Directors, Programme Area Leaders, Associate Investigators, Industry Affiliates, Affiliate Organisations, QuakeCoRE Emerging Research Chapters (QERCs), QuakeCoRE Scholars and post-graduate students including emerging and early-career researchers .

On completion of the aligned workshops this afternoon the Annual Meeting officially started with a Mihi Whakatau, with thanks to Mana Ahuriri. 


2022's Distinguished Lecture was given by Juan Carlos de La Llera: The no-risk, high-return QuakeCoRE-CIGIDEN partnership socio-natural hazard (ad)venture. 

Delivering his lecture from the heart of Aotearoa's own subduction zone drew forth immediate similarities and differences to his own Chilean landscape.
Juan Carlos traversed the diverse research portfolio of CIGIDEN and the resulting beneficial applications for Chilean society and beyond. The similarities between CIGIDEN and QuakeCoRE were indeed striking.
While highlights of the talk will be different for everyone, the unique challenges and opportunities the Chilean hazardscape presents and the innovation required to tackle such important issues will be a standout for many.

Juan Carlos's full abstract and biography are available in our Programme, available online here.

The Welcome Reception was an excellent chance for everyone to reconnect kanohi ki te kanohi, face-to-face and to make new vital connections. Attendees browsed posters and started important conversations that are sure to continue for the duration of the Annual Meeting.


The Women in QuakeCoRE Gathering concluded the evening's programme. With space for only 50 women to attend the event, those attending were mostly emerging and early-career researchers - a true testament to the diversity of our QuakeCoRE whanau. With an array of engaging speakers and an opportunity to connect more closely with peers. A fantastic evening was had by all.
