We mainly work in collaboration with institutions and public administrations, since our research has application in risk prevention strategies. The results of our research are potentially useful in improving pre-alert and alert systems, in order to manage emergency situations more efficiently. We also intervene, with respect to the assessment of Danger, Territorial Planning and Risk Management, in the creation and control of Natural Hazard Prevention Plans with administrations. Among the institutions with which we have collaborated or with which we have established contracts or agreements, we highlight the Consejo de Seguridad Nuclear, Iberdrola Ingeniería, Fundación Mapfre, Instituto Geográfico Nacional, the Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya, and the Patronat de la Muntanya of Montserrat.

Relevant examples of contracts and agreements that we have carried out are:

  • Consecutive contracts with the Patronat de la Muntanya de Montserrat for the protection of falling blocks;
  • Participation in the conception, development and quality control of the Geological Hazard Zoning and Characterization Study (mass movements) and the Anticipatory Avalanche Risk Prevention Plans of the Government of Andorra.
  • Participation in different phases of the seismic hazard review of the Ascó and Vandellós nuclear power plants following a SSHAC protocol (level 3);
    Agreements with the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (Switzerland) to collaborate in flood risk management in Haiti.
  • Participatory process (2015-2016) and in the revision of the preliminary project (2017) of the Law of the Territory of Catalonia promoted by the Departament de Territori i Sostenibilitat, focused on the aspects of urbanism and exposure to natural risk in relation to the territory. We participated in the drafting of the third report on climate change in Catalonia (2017) commissioned by the Advisory Council for Sustainable Development (CADS) of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
  • Design and implementation of the first database of active faults in the Iberian Peninsula (QAFI http://info.igme.es/qafi/), currently managed by the IGME. This tool is used by professionals (engineering and construction) and is considered in the debates on the modification of the seismic norm in Spain.
  • Development and curation of the Euro-Mediterranean Database on Submarine Landslides (EMSS; https://ls3gp.icm.csic.es/?page_id=553), which is one of the Tsunami thematic services that will soon be incorporated into EPOS (https: //ls3gp.icm.csic.es/?page_id=553). ://www.epos-eu.org).
