Between the 12th and the 25th of June, PhD student Jaime Cadena presented his work on fire risk assessment at TU Delft, the 16th International Symposium on Loss Prevention and Safety Promotion in the Process Industries and at the University of Ghent.

On the 14th of June, Jaime presented his work to the Safety and Security Science Group (3S) of TU Delft and received a warm welcome and feedback from Prof Genserik Reniers. Between the 17th and 19th of June, TU Delft hosted the Loss Prevention Symposium in which experts of both the industry and academia got together to share their experiences and lessons learnt from managing risk in hazardous industries such as chemical and oil & gas.

After a very productive visit to Delft, Jaime travelled to Gent, Belgium to meet with Prof Ruben van Coile from the University of Ghent, where he presented his research once again and got a very constructive feedback from academics and the IMFSE students. Finally, Jaime was invited to join the graduation ceremony for the IMFSE 2019 cohort in which he had the opportunity to further discuss his research with academics and students from all corners of the world.

This was a unique an amazing opportunity to showcase UQ Fire’s research on risk assessment and to receive feedback from the most relevant experts around the world and from both process and fire safety.
