fired up presentation

The Great Fired-Up of London

Imperial College hosted Fired-up following the event’s success at the University of Edinburgh in 2018. The event is a chance for young, UK based fire researches to meet up and discuss their work in a more informal setting than a traditional conference. A total of 40 students from 4 different UK universities attended the conference. We are looking forward to the 2020 edition!
