EPICentre was founded in 2007 and is a dynamic multidisciplinary research group that investigates risk to society and infrastructure from earthquakes and other natural hazards. EPICentre research projects adopt a range of methods from the physical sciences, engineering, remote sensing and social sciences. 

EPICentre is part of the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) at UCL but also comprises academics and researchers from the Departments of Psychology and Mechanical Engineering. It runs an MSc in Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management, has strong international and industrial links, and is a member of the Willis Research Network (WRN). EPICentre members are active in the UK Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics (SECED) and the Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team (EEFIT).
