Objective

The enhancement of the wild land fires sciences and technologies, and the rapid and systematic transfer towards end-users and stakeholders, incite to create this "laboratory" for effectively creating a European Research Area in the wild land fire domains. EU Fire Lab is structured in units (work-packages) for (i) reinforcing the co-operation among Euro-Mediterranean teams, (ii) activating large exchanges of knowledge and know-how, (iii) developing common concepts, approaches, and "languages", (iv) fostering the common use of facilities for research and/or technological development, and so, (v) avoiding unnecessary and expensive replications in Fuel description and modelling, Fire behaviour modelling, Fire, ecosystems functioning, and bio-diversity, Socio-economy, Decision support tools, Fire measurements methods, Fire risks and hazards, Fire suppression, Interfaces management. EU Fire Lab Observatory of wild land fire sciences and an innovative Web site enabling close connections between EU Fire Lab members and with the public ensure a large dissemination and valorisation of EU Fire Lab achievements towards the end-users and stakeholders.
