UK Postgrad Fire Discussions
The University of Edinburgh hosted a two day workshop on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th May 2018 for PhD students, based at UK universities, who are working on fire-related research projects.
The intention was simply to share research ideas, stimulate discussion & collaboration, and build friendships & working relationships which will last far beyond your time in postgraduate study.
This was not a forum for presentations of research projects which had concluded. We had contributions from PhD students (and PDRAs) at all stages in their research projects - from those just setting out, to those writing up and struggling with those last bits of data analysis.
The fiery get-together was a huge success. A similar workshop was held in 2019 at Imperial College London. Things paused due to the pandemic, but there are plans to continue being fired-up in the future!
