the effects of damage in the event of an earthquake."

Associate Professor Li, who is also an expert in earthquake engineering and seismic-resistant construction technologies, says, "We are glad that Temasek Foundation recognises our expertise in seismic-resistant construction technologies, and chooses to collaborate with NTU again to promote cost-effective methods for enhancing seismic resilience with many institutions and communities throughout Asia. This programme is an excellent model of how we can work together to bring our technological know-how to communities which face a high risk of earthquakes."

This is the second collaboration by Temasek Foundation and LIFE. A similar training programme in July 2008 brought earthquake-resistant construction techniques to the faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering at Universitas Andalas Padang and masons in western Sumatra, an earthquake-prone region in Indonesia.
