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. Given this, there will be a similar workshop next year, hosted by Imperial College London. The intention is for the gathering to happen on an annual basis, moving around the UK from university to university. Maybe you can consider hosting in 2020 or beyond?
