Eurofire is “the” European Fire Safety Engineering
Conference held in a European country every two years.
Over the last two decades five EUROFIRE Conferences have taken
place in Belgium and France. Following the last successful
conference in Paris 2011 (280 participants) EUROFIRE is now
very firmly established in the events calendar. The next EUROFIRE
conference will take place in Basel, Switzerland on 9 &
10 October 2013 and the one after that in Poland in 2015.
The main aim of this event is to support knowledge advancement
and to facilitate information exchange with regard to fire
engineering protection. The main topics for 2013 will be:-
Quality of Fire Safety Engineering Designs
Trends – sub-zero; multi use; high rise
the Cost Efficiency of Fire Engineering Design – the
Cost over the Life Cycle
to define the goals of the Fire Safety Engineer?
price is paid for the level of fire safety?
SHOULD ATTEND EUROFIRE ?
Like many other fire protection events, EUROFIRE attracts
participation from a wide audience, namely fire protection-
and construction experts, scientists and public authority
personnel as well as representatives from industry and trade
sectors. The aim of EUROFIRE is to ensure a holistic approach
to successful fire protection rather than promote standardization
of any country-specific methods and standards. This means
that regardless of the country specific standards and regulations,
the conference show-cases potential solutions by using applied
research methods to work, not only on every-day problems but
right through to highly specialised difficulties in fire safety.
technical programme includes presentations and lectures which
are important and interesting for industrial companies such
as insurance enterprises, e.g., FM-Global, to discuss specific
issues or general problems and to find appropriate engineering
solutions. Similarly, country specific markets can be analysed
and worked through much more easily by face-to-face contact
which encourages a better understanding of the relationships
between regulations and standards. Thus specialists have an
option to find new methods and to discover original problem-solving
approaches outside their usual surroundings. Moreover, even
fire departments, which are not necessarily involved in any
scientific area, find EUROFIRE a valuable event in which to
participate. EUROFIRE 2011 Paris was supported by the French
interior ministry and supported by the Paris fire brigade
which used the conference as part of its 200 year jubilee
