From September 2021, IZIIS officially became a member of the EEFIT (Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team) which aims to:
- Carry out detailed technical evaluations of the performance of structures, foundations, civil engineering works and industrial plants within affected regions.
- Collect geological and seismographic data, including strong motion records.
- Assess the effectiveness of earthquake protection methods, including repair and retrofit, and to compare actual performance with designer expectations.
- Study disaster management procedures and socio-economic effects of earthquakes.
