Developing a strategic roadmap for the future of fire engineering

The SFPE Foundation seeks industry, academic, government, non-profit, and other partners to invest in a multi-year research and educational collaboration to develop a strategy for action. Together, we’ll leverage the collective expertise of our networks to identify how fire safety science and engineering can contribute to addressing pressing challenges in: Energy & Infrastructure, Resilience & Sustainability, Climate Change, and Digitalization, Artificial Intelligence, & Cybersecurity.

Join us at the “Grand Challenges Summit” and participate as a GCI Founding Partner as we collaborate on workshops, working groups, and white papers that will become our collective roadmap for the future.
