Mitigating this risk requires integrated and coordinated action that embraces a  wide range of organisations and disciplines. For this reason, the LESSLOSS Integrated Project, funded by the European Commission under the auspices of its Sixth Framework Programme, is formulated by a large number of European Centres of excellence in earthquake and geotechnical engineering integrating in the traditional fields of engineers and earth scientists some expertise of social scientists, economists, urban planners and information technologists.  The LESSLOSS project addresses natural disasters, risk and impact assessment, natural hazard monitoring, mapping and management strategies, improved disaster preparedness and mitigation, development of advanced methods for risk assessment, methods of appraising environmental quality and relevant pre-normative research.  A major objective of the project is to describe current best practice and advance knowledge in each area investigated. Thus, LESSLOSS has produced, under the coordination of the Joint Research Centre, a series of Technical reports addressed to technical and scientific communities, national, regional and local public administrations, design offices, and civil protection agencies with the following titles: Lessloss-2007/01: Landslides: Mapping, Monitoring, Modelling and Stabilization Lessloss-2007/02: European Manual for in-situ Assessment of Important Existing Structures Lessloss-2007/03: Innovative Anti-Seismic Systems Users Manual Lessloss-2007/04: Guidelines for Seismic Vulnerability Reduction in the Urban Environment Lessloss-2007/05: Guidelines for Displacement-based Design of Buildings and Bridges Lessloss-2007/06: Probabilistic Methods to Seismic Assessment of Existing Structures Lessloss-2007/07: Earthquake Disaster Scenario Predictions and Loss Modelling for Urban Areas Lessloss-2007/08: Prediction of Ground Motion and Loss Scenarios for Selected Infrastructure Systems in European Urban Environments
