Description

This wildfire@manchester seminar was the second of three half-day knowledge exchange events organised as part of the Knowledge for Wildfire NERC KE fellowship project. http://www.kfwf.org.uk

The pre-circulated keynote presentation was followed by replies from invited discussants representing different practitioner sectors (e.g. Fire officers, moorland land managers, Forestry Commission), and then by discussion from the floor. The Keynote speaker was Professor John Dold, a RCUK-funded fire behaviour researcher from Applied Mathematics, University Manchester.
We produced report for the Knowledge for Wildfire project website (www.kfwf.org.uk).

The series builds on stakeholder engagement experience from coordinating the ESRC/NERC-funded FIRES seminar series (four 2-day events, 2007-1009).
