Earthquake hazard analyses rely on the availability of seismogenic source models. The recently released European Fault-Source Model 2020 (EFSM20), which was one of the primary input datasets of the European Seismic Hazard Model 2020, was entirely based on reusable data from existing active fault regional compilations. As scientific research on identifying and characterizing active faults progresses, the systematization and distribution of such research outputs should keep pace with the most recent technical developments in data distribution and usage.
The aim of this meeting is to identify the future perspectives of seismogenic fault databases at various scales, analyze their user needs (e.g., earthquake hazard analysts), and discuss how to tackle the challenges ahead of us.
