  • BRE centre of Fire Safety Engineering - The University of Edinburgh has been an important institution in the field of Fire Safety Engineering for over three decades. Many of those who are now leaders in the field came to Edinburgh to study and research under the supervision of the late Prof David Rasbash, one of the main pioneers of the discipline, and Prof Dougal Drysdale, author of the definitive text book on the subject, 'Introduction to Fire Dynamics' (Wiley, 2nd edition 1998). Teaching and research in fire safety continues at Edinburgh under the leadership of Prof Jose Torero, appointed to the BRE/RAE Chair in Fire Safety Engineering in 2004.
  • NIST - National Institute of Standard and Technology (Building and Fire research laboratory) The mission of the building and fire research programs at NIST is to anticipate and meet the measurement science, standards, and technology needs of the U.S. building and fire safety industries in areas of critical national need. Strategic goals include net-zero energy high-performance buildings, advancing infrastructure delivery and improving construction productivity through information integration and automation technologies, sustainable infrastructure materials, innovative fire protection, and disaster-resilient structures and communities, which includes work on hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires. NIST has specific statutory responsibilities for fire prevention and control, earthquake hazards reduction, windstorm impact reduction, and building and fire safety investigations.
