Learning From Earthquakes Travel Study Program: New Zealand – 5 – 12 May, 2019
Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) is teaming up with QuakeCoRE to offer an opportunity to be part of the Learning from Earthquakes Travel Study Program, 5–12 May, 2019.
This program offers a unique opportunity to learn directly from experts in the field and contribute to knowledge of recovery from recent earthquakes in New Zealand.
Field study trips provide an opportunity to build an understanding of the role and importance of reconnaissance activities and provide hands-on experience with reconnaissance activities. The program seeks to inspire the next generation of leaders.
Applications for the 2019 programme are open until November 19, 2018. For more information including the application details can be found here.
Who should Apply:
The program is open to the earthquake resilience research community, including both the EERI and the QuakeCoRE communities. However it is targeted at postgraduate students and young professionals; both early career researchers and early career practitioners. The organisers are keen to build on the interdisciplinary success of the 2017 programme and seek applications from participants across a diverse spectrum from social sciences, geotechnical and engineering.
How to Apply:
The applications close on 19 November 2018.
Application link available here.
How much does it cost:
Program participants are responsible for all travel expenses to and from New Zealand, and the following registration fee –
|Registration Fee: Students||$500 (USD)|
|Registration Fee: Young Professionals||$1,750 (USD)|
“I participated in the inaugural LFE TSP in 2017 in Chile. I found it to be very worthwhile in many aspects. Our field trips were well planned with great opportunities to interact with locals and learn from their experiences during and after the earthquake. The focus was interdisciplinary and practical. I learned a lot about the state of practice in Chile, including state-of-the-art engineering and some great, cost-effective seismic solutions for low-income housing. And perhaps most importantly I enjoyed meeting young colleagues from around the world, both professionals and academics, and working with them to report our findings back to the earthquake engineering community.” – Laura Whitehurst, 2017 Chile participant
