EPICentre was founded in 2007 and is a dynamic multidisciplinary research Centre that investigates risk to society, the built and natural environment from natural hazards. EPICentre members span across UCL, and our research projects adopt a range of research skills (numerical, experimental, field work, interviews, focus groups, elicitations and statistical analysis) for tackling complex real-world problems linking the built environment and natural hazards.

EPICentre is located in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) at UCL , and  runs an MSc in Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management. Internally to UCL it collaborates with the UCL Hazard Centre and UCL IRDR . EPICentre has strong industrial links, and is a member of the Willis Research Network (WRN). It has research projects across the globe with several international partners and the World Bank.
