Professor Roberto Paolucci has been confirmed as a member of “Commissione Grandi Rischi” and as the contact person for the Seismic Risk Sector, a role he has held since 2018. This role involves coordinating sector activities with the leadership of the Department of Civil Protection.
“Commissione Grandi Rischi” is the technical-scientific advisory body of the Department of Civil Protection (DPC). It is convened both in emergency conditions, as in the case of the ongoing seismic-volcanic crisis in the Campi Flegrei, and to provide opinions on the mitigation activities carried out by the DPC in various risk sectors affecting civil society.
The composition of the Grand Risks Commission is renewed every 5 years, and the appointment of new members for the 2023-2028 five-year period was published in the Official Gazette a few weeks ago.
