Visit to Peru
Visit to Peruvian Universities
Dr Christian Málaga visited various research groups and universities committed to the reduction of seismic risk in Peru. During his visit in January 2018, Dr Málaga gave a series of invited seminars at the Universidad Católica San Pablo (UCSP), the Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) and the Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería (UNI) and visited the Centro Peruano Japonés de Investigaciones Sísmicas y Mitigación de Desastres (CISMID) and its Centro de Sensibilización. He also had the opportunity to see the new Seismic Monitoring Centre hosted at the CISMID and learnt about current efforts to extend the network of instrumented buildings and the steps currently being taken in order to set-up a National Early Warning System in Peru. A number of meetings with Peruvian academics and entrepreneurs were organised where plans for future collaboration were drafted.
