NEN, SFPE and BBN(*) are organizing a webinar about fire safety of facades which is due to take place on the 6th October 2020 starting at 15:00 (CEST). The latest scientific insights are shared by speakers from different parts of Europe. The webinar is organized for everyone who is involved in fire safety of facades and is interested in the latest scientific developments.

Worldwide there are examples of large and sometimes uncontrollable building fires, mainly involving facades. The fire in the Grenfell Tower is one of them, but there are many more of these examples. This has attracted the attention of experts in the field and prompted them to improve the fire safety of facades.

In the webinar “Facade Fire Safety” the latest scientific insights will be clearly shared for further knowledge acquisition. There will also be a Q&A portion in which participants can ask questions via the Q&A chat.

Speakers and organisation of the webinar: 

  • Dr. Angus Law (University of Edinburgh)
  • Lars Boström (RISE)
  • Eric Guillaume (Efectis)
  • Sven Eeckhout (Belgian research organisation BBRI)
