Understanding of earthquake physics, from rock fracture to earthquake fault scale, will enhance the quality of life both of European citizens and of vulnerable populations worldwide. This research will develop new innovative techniques based on modern statistical seismology, modern thermodynamic, superstatistics and generalized (cross-over) non extensive statistical physics [NESP] principles for the analysis of seismicity. The latter techniques will be supported from the application of existing robust seismological methodologies as accelerated –decelerated seismicity, ETAS modelling, change of seismicity rates and time dependent stress transfer.
