We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
RAPID-N is a web-based scientific software application for the rapid risk assessment and mapping of industrial accidents triggered by natural disasters (Natech). By using natural hazard scenario as input, it estimates the extent and probability of damage to industrial process equipment and models consequences of probable natech events (e.g. fire, explosion, chemical release) that may be triggered by the estimated damage. RAPID-N aims at facilitating natech risk assessment/mapping and enhance information sharing on natechs by providing a collaborative and open-access environment.
