About the Conference
It is estimated that globally, two billion square meters of new building stock are needed every year between now and 2025, especially for housing. Global carbon dioxide emissions have increased by almost 50% since 1990, and as it is seen, in the search for sustainable development, timber buildings seem to take precedence. In addition to environmental friendliness, timber buildings pose some additional risks, such as fire safety.
The online conference will bring together a multidisciplinary group of leading engineers and researchers in the domain of fire risk assessment, building design, and construction. Agenda topics will include design objectives, practical experiences, and research. The conference will provide time for facilitated discussion and dialogue.
