  • Limits of predictability and how can seismic hazard models be rigorously tested?
  • Developments in monitoring, fast analysis and rapid response
  • Early warning systems for earthquakes
  • Outreach and transfer of knowledge
  • 3D prediction of the in situ stress field and its anthropogenic changes
