QuakeCoRE is a national Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) of earthquake resilience researchers. The Centre is hosted at the University of Canterbury, and includes seven formal partners, University of Auckland, BRANZ,GNS Science, Massey University, University of Waikato and Victoria University of Wellington.  

QuakeCoRE leverages strengths across the country and internationally, working collaboratively on integrated multidisciplinary programmes of world class research. Its aim is to support the development of an earthquake-resilient Aotearoa New Zealand where thriving communities have the capacity to recover rapidly after major earthquakes through mitigation and pre-disaster preparation.
