The JRC/ELSA Unit is supporting the implementation, harmonization and further development of the Eurocodes. In this framework, ELSA is hosting three events on earthquake engineering, taking place on 27-29 November, 2013. The three events share the common purpose of contributing to the evolution of Eurocode 8. The events are as follows: 1) On the afternoon of the 27th of November, there will be the first meeting of the Working Group 1 (WG1) of the European Association for Earthquake Engineering (EAEE) that was established by the EAEE in order to be able to contribute to the evolution of Eurocode 8, mainly in what concerns the medium and long term view. 2) A Workshop of the FP7 SHARE project, Seismic Hazard Harmonization in Europe will take place on the 28th of November, convened for discussion on SHARE model, hazard results and SHARE engineering output. Future steps will be discussed, taking advantage of the feedback from CEN Sub-Committee TC250/SC8 and from WG1 of the EAEE. 3) On 29th, November, the 27th meeting of SC8 will be held in order to prepare a detailed work schedule for tasks included in the Phase 1 of the evolution of Eurocode 8, to specify the SC8 criteria for selection of Project Team (PT) members, and to address the reestablishment of National Technical Contacts.
