We regularly invite experts on disaster research to share their knowledge with us in our Disaster Research Seminar Series. Please feel free to join us for their disaster talks, or to enroll in one of their master classes. Also, our own team members regularly give presentations at conferences, symposia, etc.
Are you a member of a fire prone community keen to share your experiences or simply interested in helping us out, but don't know how? We are always looking for people to participate in our projects. So contact us to see how you can contribute.
