Multinational Module on Damage Assessment and Countermeasures (MATILDA)

The Matilda project is focused on the design and implementation of a multinational macro-module for post-earthquake building safety assessment and countermeasures in international emergencies.

The macro-module is based on the experience developed within the DrHouse project, funded by the European Commission under the "Preparatory Action on an EU Rapid Response Capability". Main result of DrHouse project was the design, implementation, training and exercising of the Build-Safe macro-module.

While Build-Safe entirely consists of Italian resources (Civil Protection Department, Eucentre, Fire Department, Italian Regions), Matilda project is intended to provide the multinational dimension to the macro-module
