Fire protection 2017

Published: 12 December 2017

Students from the Fire Protection Engineer program have in recent years been given the opportunity to attend the Fire Protection Conference, this year held at Scandic Infra City in Upplands Väsby. Eight students from Luleå University of Technology attended this event.

During the conference that lasted for two days, news and trends from the industry were presented and discussed with representatives from, among others, fire, risk and security associations, consultancy companies, rescue services, boverket, MSB and various other companies in the fire and risk industry. The theme of this year's conference was divided into four block headings:

  • Fire protection in the construction process - From the inside
  • Authorities / future outlook
  • News from the Research World
  • Rescue service in the construction process

An exciting theme with elements of high-level topics and challenges. In conjunction with the conference lecture hall there was also a fair hall where three LTU students were given the opportunity to exhibit their degree projects.

All the students who participated in the 2017 conference were very pleased with their experience. We got a good insight into what is going on in the industry and what problems for future brand engineers will face. After two full days of seminars and lectures, many lessons could be taken home to Luleå.

In conclusion, we would like to thank the organizers of Brandskydd, the Swedish Fire Consultants Association, Brandforsk, Sprinkler Promotion and the Information Company, which enables the conference and Luleå University of Technology to enable students to participate.
