As suppliers of the Palert Early Warning Systems in New Zealand, Jenlogix will be attending the training course on Earthquake Early Warning systems in East Asia, which runs from the 25th of March to the 28th March this year at the Institute of Earth Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. This has been organised by the
IntegratedResearch onDisaster Risk International Centre of Excellence-Taipei (IRDR ICoE-Taipei), the International Council for Science Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ICSU ROAP), the Institute of Earth Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taiwan (AS), the Taiwan Earthquake Center (TEC), the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) and the Salien technology Corp.

The IRDR ICoE-Taipei and its co-organizer, the team of TEC, will hold a training course on earthquake early warning system using low cost sensors. It also encourages learning and exchange of ideas among Asian scientists. This course will focus on earthquake early warning, including hardware and software training. Both lecturers and scientists will share data/studies, and experiences from earthquake early warning and relevant implementation. Exercises and group discussions will be planned to facilitate the communications among the participants.
To strengthen the outcomes of the training courses, "call-for-proposal" will be announced no later than 3-6 months after this training course. The trainees will be invited to submit earthquake early warning research proposals, followed by a competitive reviewing process. Only limited numbers of proposals will be granted for one year. IRDR ICoE-Taipei and ICSU ROAP will review and announce results no later than three months after the closing of the proposal submission. The grantees will be required to submit a report to IRDR ICoE-Taipei and ICSU ROAP no later than three months after the end of the executive period.
