ICG - International Centre for Geohazards

The goal of the International Centre for Geohazards (ICG), one of Norway's first Centres of Excellence (CoE), was to be an international arena for conducting scientific and technological research on identification, assessment, prevention and mitigation of geohazards.
Research on the assessment, prevention and mitigation of geohazards.

ICG was established in 2002 with 10 year funding from The Research Council of Norway. NGI was the leading institution, and the research consortium also consisted of the Institute for Geosciences at the University of Oslo (UiO), The Geotechnical Group at NTNU, the NGU (Geological Survey of Norway) and NORSAR. 

The research focusat ICG was on the assessment, prevention and mitigation of geohazards, including risk of landslide in soil and rock due to rainfall, flooding, earthquakes and human intervention, and the geological risks in deep waters. The new knowledge contributes to saving lives and reducing damage due to geological hazards.

In addition, training and education of researchers and specialists were one of the major objectives of ICG. To meet this objective, ICG initiated graduate programs (MSc and PhD) in geohazards within the faculties of Geology at UiO and Civil engineering at NTNU.

After the 10 year funding period, ICG concluded its initial assignment in 2012. The ICG consortium still takes on assignments upon request, and the partners have agreed to continue their collaboration on geohazards research on a project-by-project basis.
