The WildfireX 2024 international competition establishes an open call for the dissemination of academic design and research projects related to wildfire risk reduction and management in the built environment and wildland-urban interface.

Wildfire risk reduction aims to prevent new hazards and reduce existing risks, strengthening the resilience of the population, governance systems, and the territory. Acting to reduce wildfire risks requires long-term integrated strategies that bring together a variety of actors and sectors. Among the disciplines that influence wildfire risk reduction, we can find architecture and territorial planning, forestry management and engineering, social studies, geography, territorial information systems, and all those areas dedicated to the study and development of solutions for wildfire prevention and management.

Participants can be students or professionals who want to publish their projects (undergraduate or postgraduate), that are related to wildfire risk management. The main requirement is that projects cannot be more than 4 years old, therefore, applications for research carried out from January 1, 2020, to date will be considered.

The competition has two axes of applications:

  • Research Projects
  • Academic Design Projects
