Presentation: Research Needs for the Fire Safety Engineering Profession: The SFPE Roadmap 

In October 2017 the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) published a roadmap that outlines the future research needs for the fire safety engineering profession. This presentation will discuss how the SFPE roadmap is the definitive document that will be central to defining research priorities and the future technical initiatives in the fire safety engineering profession. The presentation will identify the nine major themes outlined in the SFPE research roadmap and how these themes are linked to essential design tools, applications and methods. This presentation will also describe how the SFPE roadmap will guide future initiatives for research organizations and act as a bridge between research and practice..
