PyroLife - training the next generation of integrated fire management experts

Project description

The heat is on to train fire experts

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has warned Europe that climate change conditions – heatwave and droughts – are already resulting in stronger and faster-spreading fires. From 2017 to 2018, super fires fanned by gale force winds left behind 225 dead in the EU Member States - Greece, Portugal, and Spain. The EU-funded PyroLife project will train a new generation of experts in integrated wildfire management. Bringing together knowledge from different countries, scientific disciplines and practices, the project will provide 15 early stage researchers the in-depth, interdisciplinary, integrated and transferable knowledge and skills required to complete their research and maximise future employability. This is the first large and integrated doctoral training programme on handling wildfires management globally.
