France-Australia Bushfire Science Workshop
15-17 September 2020
AEST 4pm – 6.30pm
CEST 8am - 10.30am

 

 

The workshop will provide Australian and French researchers with a forum to share, discuss and anticipate research relevant to bushfire and other natural hazard emergencies with key research users including emergency service and government agencies.

The workshop aims to build upon the strong interest in Australia and internationally in bushfire response following the unprecedented 2019-20 Australian bushfire season. Current and future collaborators in bushfire and hazard research will gain a consolidated and greater appreciation of where joint activity is needed to better prepare for, support and respond to expected and emerging challenges.

The workshop program will be held over three days at a time suitable to participants in both France and Australia. Panel discussions will be led by researchers, government and agency representatives, and policy makers from both countries, with opportunities for workshop participants to ask questions.

The topics to be covered include:

  • The emergency response to the crisis

  • The science of extreme fires

  • Managing the land, forests and urban zones

  • The costs of bushfires

  • Environmental restoration

  • Future risks

  • Opportunities for collaboration
