Seismic Base Isolation workshop

the main building of the National Innovation Office
Krausz Palace, 12 Andrássy út, Budapest 1061

We can read increasingly shocking news on devastating earthquakes all over the world these days. It is enough to remember the irreparable loss of monuments in Italy just now, as well as the death toll in the Middle East. Field research of recent decades has achieved unprecedented results in the prevention of such catastrophes. A feasible new construction technology may serve the protection of several thousand housing blocks, industrial buildings, sports facilities, river bridges, airports, nuclear power plants etc.
