UQ-Ghent University: Fire Safety Science and Engineering (FSSE)

Fire Safety Engineering (FSE) has become an indispensable tool in the strive towards sustainability with ever evolving architecture and material developments. FSE is not only important in the context of worldwide urbanization, but also for wildfires and their interaction with the built environment (WUI: Wildland – Urban Interface). The development of fire safety science is of utmost importance to improve FSE.
In this Strategical International Partnership, we wish to enhance collaboration between the partners in the domain of fire safety science and engineering (FSSE), aimed at increasing our understanding of the different aspects of FSSE, optimizing the use of FSE.
