National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering (NCREE)

The National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering (NCREE) was officially established in 1990 through a joint effort of the National Science Council (NSC; now the National Science and Technology Council, NSTC) and the National Taiwan University (NTU). In order to enhance the efficiency and performance of the national research laboratories, which belong to NSC, the National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs) was established in June, 2003. Since then, NCREE has become a non-profit organization and is one of the ten laboratory members of NARLabs.

In accordance with the national requirements for pre-earthquake preparedness, emergency response, and post-earthquake recovery, NCREE has put together academic resources and researchers to carry out joint projects to upgrade seismic technologies and to reduce life and property losses resulting from earthquakes. On top of that, NCREE also encourages international collaborations in selected fields to initiate consolidation and innovation in academic research and engineering practice. In doing so, NCREE could promote Taiwan’s academic reputation in the related filed around the globe. It is hoped that NCREE will become a prestigious and respected international earthquake engineering research center through its modern large-scale experimental facilities, newly developed experimental technologies and up-to-date earthquake database.
