You are invited to take part in a survey carried out as part of the H2020 EU funded FirEUrisk research project.
Before you decide to participate in the present survey, please, be informed of the following details and, if you wish, consent to your participation.
What is the FirEUrisk research project about?
FirEUrisk intends to develop, evaluate and disseminate a science-based integrated strategy to: 1) expand current wildland fire risk assessment systems, including critical factors of risk previously not covered; 2) produce effective measures to reduce current fire risk conditions, and 3) adapting management strategies to expected future climate and socioeconomic changes. This will be achieved in close collaboration between researchers, stakeholders and citizens, integrating novel technologies, guidelines and policy recommendations to improve current systems and practices from regional to EU scales.
This survey is developed in the context of Activity 1.1.3 "Human ignition drivers & Public participation in fire prevention and preparedness" of the FirEUrisk project (Activity Leader: Universidad de Alcala - Spain), which will develop a framework for a citizen-science approach to the analysis of actors’ and stakeholders’ perceptions of causes and impacts of large fires through analysis of public attitudes and perceptions, by means of a dedicated survey as well as by participatory workshops. A prototype mobile application will be developed to help improve fire risk awareness in fire prone areas.
How long is the whole FirEUrisk research project likely to last?
The duration of the project is 48 months.
What will you need to do?
For the purposes of the current research activity you are asked to participate in this on-line survey. This survey is aimed at gathering explorative data around perception of Human Ignition Drivers and Fire risk among citizens. The survey is aimed at gathering data useful for the design of a prototype mobile application to help improve fire risk awareness in fire prone areas.
No personal data will be collected.
How will this take place?
This research activity will take place on-line.
How often will you have to take part, and for how long?
You will take part once. The survey consists mainly of closed questions and will only take around 15 minutes to complete.
Could you be contacted at a later stage of the project?
