WUIVIEW Final Workshop

By Pau Costa Foundation

15 January 2021
Wildland-Urban Interfaces

 

The workshop will be held virtually through the WUIVIEW Zoom platform, and we expect all types of WUI fire actors (fire and civil protection agencies, fire practitioners, researchers, etc.). It will be trilingual, with simultaneous translation between English and Portuguese / Spanish.

The first workshop, held in Coimbra in January 2020, had over 400 participants, demonstrating the interest in this topic.

This time the event will be online, also with open access, but subject to registration. This Workshop, entitled “Self-protection against fires at the Urban-Forest Interface, at the owner level”, will focus on the systems and methods developed within the project to enhance self-protection at home-owner level. We will firstly analyse typical vulnerabilities identified in WUI properties, both concerning residential fuels and structures. Following we will present the WUIVIEW strategy to increase self-protection and risk awareness in WUI communities and the WUIVIEW novel engineering framework to get an in-depth understanding of fire impact in dwellings and other exposed infrastructures.
