PyroLife Project

PyroLife is a doctoral training program that trains researchers on various topics related to forest fires. A project that will train a new generation of experts in integrated forest fire management.

Marie-Curie Action, part of the Horizon 2020 Program from the European Union, has recently selected to fund a new global initiative in forest fire research. The initiative, PyroLife, will support 15 PhD students around the world to carry out interdisciplinary projects focused on forest fires.

The objective of the projects is to help facilitate the advancement of holistic forest fire management. PyroLife focuses on incorporating diverse backgrounds that can promote creativity for innovative wildfire strategies. A key objective of the initiative is to instill transferable, cross-cutting knowledge and maximize the employability of its graduates.
