The Horizon 2020 FirEUrisk Project is organising a series of training events to spread awareness on the work and results of the projects.

The first training, on 2 February, offered an overview of the project’s new fuel classification system.

On 22 February, the second event of the series will focus on mapping the wildland-urban interface (WUI): the main host of this training will be Prof. Avi Bar-Massada from the University of Haifa (Israel).

Participants will have the possibility to learn about the current state-of-the-art in WUI mapping: the discussion will focus on the rationale behind different mapping approaches, the pros and cons of each strategy, and its data requirements. Moreover, an example of mapping the WUI in a single demonstration region will be presented and the training will show attendees how to create WUI maps for their region of interest in order to give their contribution to the improvement of fire management and policies that aim to reduce risk posed by fire to human lives and property.

Have a look to the training agenda for more detailed information (objectives, results, format).

Register to the event before 16 February!
