A French delegation composed of representatives from Pôle Risques (Risk Management hub), the French National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture (IRSTEA), the Centre for Studies of Human Factors (CEFH) and the Pôle Pégase (Aeronautics and Space hub) has met with the Australian Bushfire CRC representatives during a visit of 9 days in Australia.
The visit has been an opportunity for the delegation, headed by Mr Richard Biagioni, Director of Pôle Risques, to sign a Memorandum of Understanding highlighting its commitment to bilateral research and development with Mr Gary Morgan, CEO of Bushfire Collaborative Research Centre (CRC), on October 22, in the presence of H.E. Mr Stéphane Romatet, Ambassador of France to Australia.
The delegation also visited the 2003 Canberra bushfire sites, accompanied by Mr Mark Crosweller, Commissioner, ACT Emergency Services Agency and Mr Neil Cooper, ACT Parks and Conservation Service Manager, Fire Management Unit. The members participated in the Research Advisory Forum with the Bushfire CRC at Homebush (23-24 October) followed by the International Association of Wildland Safety Summit (IAWF) in Sydney on October 25-26.
This visit to Australia follows a visit to France in July 2012 by an Australian delegation comprised of the Bushfire CRC and other partner agencies to the Bouches-du-Rhône (City of Marseille) Fire and Emergency Services Agency (SDIS13) in Marseille. The SDIS13 will sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Bushfire CRC as part of its forthcoming mission to Australia in early 2013.
Pôle Risques plans to organize a further mission to Australia to attend the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC) Expo 2013, to be held from the 2nd to the 5th of September 2013.
