Abstract: The paper reviews the main features of the existing facilities and research programmes, discusses the premises of a worldwide co-operation on earthquake testing and simulation with a focus on standardization of data allowing for exchange between facilities as well as for effective data exploitation by the user communities. The objective is to increase the value of testing (“…we must converge and collaborate….the barrier is the lack of strategic vision for shared resources”) and to catalyze real inter-laboratory collaboration and exchange of expertise in view of the growing experimental complexity.
