Durant el periode 2014-2017, el grup ha participat en 7 projectes RDi competitius i 1 projecte d'innovació docent. Un membre del GIES pertany al comitè organitzador de l'Action COST TU 1208 -Civil Engineering Applications (Unió Europea) i ha estat membre de l'organització del congrés internacional d'aquesta Action COST a Barcelona. El grup ha publicat 27 articles en revistes indexades JCR, 25 articles i collaboracions en revistes no indexades, 2 capítols de llibre i 28 actas i presentacions a congressos. També consten 34 projectes no competitius o convenis amb administracions o empreses.

The group's aims are research, outreach, training and results transfer in fields related to geophysics and earthquake engineering.
