Eight members of the SGEB went to Morocco after the earthquake that struck the Al Haouz region on September 8, 2023.
Our team first participated in a seminar and technical exchanges hosted by the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University, which was organized by the Rebuild Programme. In the following days, the heavily impacted regions close to the mountains as well as the surroundings of Marrakech, where the earthquake was also strongly felt, were visited.

Members of the reconnaissance mission team:

  • Dr. Afifa Imtiaz (SED),
  • Dr. Savvas Saloustros, Yuhan Zhu (EESD-EPFL)
  • Prof. Dr. Mylène Devaux (HEIA-FR)
  • Hamza Sehaqui (Editech SA)
  • Meriton Beqiraj (Résonance Ingénieurs-ConseilsSA)
  • Dr. Gustavo Cortés (Exigo Expertises SA)
  • Eric Lattion (Lattion Bruchez Ingenieurs)

Our team will present their experiences and observations (in English).

The webinar can be attended without registration and free of charge by clicking on the link above.


Just a heads up by Savvas Saloustros: In the visited areas most of the buildings were in stone masonry or in confined brick masonry. However, we visited some cases of earthen structures.
