Bernhard Garn @COST Action NERO

On Oct 17, 2023, Bernhard Garn joined as MC member of Austria the meeting MC1 of the COST Action NERO (CA22164 – european Network on Extreme fiRe behaviOr).

This meeting marks the start of this COST Action, which focuses on novel fire regimes characterized by extreme events. NERO’s objectives include:

  • Foster the exchange of knowledge and expertise – researchers & practitioners develop and implement a common agenda
  • Train the new generation of fire scientists and practitioners across Europe, with particular emphasis on emerging fire-prone countries
  • Promote transnational cooperation – share knowledge & tools, not only manpower and firefighting means
  • Research serving practice – researchers become aware of operational priorities, needs, and constraints
  • Consolidate common awareness and improved, unified training across Europe
  • Break silos – create environment to foster cooperative analyses

The goals and activities of NERO are of high interest to the DEFSYS team of MATRIS relating to their activities on disaster research.

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation
networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by
sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.
