Ergo is an open-source project that helps reduce the time-from-discovery gap that exists between researchers, practitioners, and decision makers by integrating the latest research findings, most accurate data, and new methodologies into a single software product. It was developed as a platform to perform seismic risk assessment in the Consequence-based Risk Management (CRM) framework. Ergo is built upon an open-source, extensible software platform developed at NCSA using the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP).
