Dear Friends and Colleagues, ...

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Together with my partners at StroNGER S.r.l. (a SME in Rome-ITALY), we are planning our participation in Horizon 2020.

We are mostly interested in the following forthcoming calls:

- MG.8.1-2014: Smarter design, construction and maintenance;
- MG.8.2-2014: Next generation transport infrastructure: resource efficient, smarter and safer;
- MG.8.4-2015: Smart governance, network resilience and streamlined delivery of infrastructure innovation;
- DRS-7-2014: Crisis management topic 7: Crises and disaster resilience – operationalizing resilience concepts;
- DRS-11-2015: Disaster Resilience & Climate Change topic 3: Mitigating the impacts of climate change and natural hazards on cultural heritage sites, structures and artefacts;
- DRS-13-2015: Critical Infrastructure Protection topic 2: Demonstration activity on tools for adapting building and infrastructure standards and design methodologies in vulnerable locations in case of natural or man-originated catastrophes;
- DRS-14-2015: Critical Infrastructure Protection topic 3: Critical Infrastructure resilience indicator - analysis and development of methods for assessing resilience;
- DRS-17-2014/2015: Critical infrastructure protection topic 7: SME instrument topic: “Protection of urban soft targets and urban critical infrastructures” .

We can contribute in the following specific subjects:
- Design and rehabilitation of civil structures and infrastructures with regard to wind, earthquakes, waves, landslides, fire and explosions;
- Disaster resilience assessment;
- Advanced numerical modeling of civil structures and infrastructures;
- Forensic engineering;
- Sustainability and Energy Harvesting in Civil structures and infrastructures.

If you are forming a consortium and would like to involve a group with the above skills and expertise, please get in touch with us!

    • StroNGER for Horizon 2020 3/61 3/45 3/61 Structures of the Next Generation – Energy harvesting and Resilience Stronger S.r.l. is a Spin-off Company (Small Medium Enterprise) that works as a link between the Academia and the Industry in Civil and Environmental Engineering. The Company offers high-profile tools and methodologies that lead to structures that fulfill required performances under a resilience and sustainability point of view. With resilience it is intended the capacity of a system (intended as an aggregate of interconnected elements such as structures and infrastructures) to resist negative events (either of natural, accidental or exceptional origin), while at the same time, it maintains an acceptable level of service and integrity and the capacity to reorganize in an efficient manner. With sustainability it is intended the requirement that leads to a rational use of resources, direction of investments, technological and normative progress, with the future needs of the society, as well as those current.

The methodology shall be based on at least four types of critical infrastructure as test cases. Specific models and modeling approaches will be proposed(..). security metrics and indicators will be proposed that could be used in the developed models to quantify to the possible extent the considered risk and impact as well as give guidance to the possible mitigation techniques – approaches. New methods of assessing resilience based upon comprehensive threat, criticality, and vulnerability assessments are of outmost importance.
