Venue: Hotel Sheraton, Kneze Borne 2, 10 000 Zagreb
Organizer: European Commission - DG Joint Research Centre
Within the national framework for adoption of the Eurocodes, each country must elaborate maps for climatic and seismic actions for structural design. National choice, which should cover country particularities in climatic and seismic conditions, is allowed through 142 clauses in EN 1991 and EN 1998.
The Workshop is aimed at building capacities for elaboration of maps for climatic and seismic actions for structural design in non-EU countries in the Balkan region. It is organized by the JRC and hosted by the Croatian Standards Institute within the framework of the JRC Enlargement and Integration Action. It builds upon the activities carried out at the Workshop on the Adoption of the Eurocodes in the Balkan region, held on 5-6 December 2013 in Milan and at the JRC, Ispra, Italy and the Workshop for Building capacities for elaboration of NDPs and NAs of the Eurocodes in the Balkan Region, held on 4-5 November 2014 in Skopje, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
The Workshop is aimed at further adoption and implementation of the Eurocodes in the non-EU countries in the Balkan region. In particular, it is envisaged to serve the following main objectives:
o To strengthen the capacities of the stakeholders from non-EU countries in the Balkan region for the elaboration of maps for climatic and seismic actions for structural design with the Eurocodes
o To facilitate the regional cooperation and networking among non-EU countries in the Balkan region towards successful implementation of the Eurocodes
