Seeking assistance from independent contractor for the AFAN project

In the framework of the project AFAN (Advanced Fire Analysis Network), funded by European Union Civil Protection, the Pau Costa Foundation needs technical assistance to develop a report about the State-of-the-Art of Atlantic and Northern European countries on the fire assessment skills and capacities (Task 2.1 of the project).  

AFAN aims at formalising a European network on fire analysis knowledge (or fire assessment) and create a space for sharing knowledge and experiences, enhancing cooperation and networking.
