The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), founded in 1975 upon the recommendation from the European Seismological Commission (ESC), a regional commission of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI), itself a specialized association of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). Since 1987, the EMSC was charged by the Council of Europe (CoE) to provide the latter with seismic warnings in the framework of the Open Partial Agreement (OPA) on the prevention of, protection against, and organization of relief in major natural and technological disasters.

Institute of Geosciences (IGEO) is an active member of the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC-CSEM), since 2003.

The official representative of IGEO at EMSC is Dr. Edmond Dushi
