1st International Symposium K-FORCE 2017 - First Announcement and Call for Papers

Faculty of Technical Sciences from Novi Sad, in cooperation with Higher Education Technical School of Professional Studies in Novi Sad, National Fire Protection Association and European Youth Parliament, organizes first international symposium Knowledge For Resilient soCiEty - K-FORCE 2017, within Erasmus + K-FORCE project.

Climate change, fast urbanization and new technologies, in interaction with irresponsible human activities, cause the need for multydisciplinary and interdisciplinary engineering competencies, knowledge and skills. Considering these, available higher education is insufficient and unsustainable at regional level without modernizing and further development.

Numerous human causalities, significant material damages and negative environmental impact of natural and manmade disasters and fires in the Balkans are the warning calling for change of approach to these issues.

Resilient societies are based on knowledge and training, as well as preparedness. Building synchronized regional capacities in higher education in Disaster Risk Management and Fire Safety Engineering, according to regional needs and contemporary trends, is a first trend towards building resiliency of our region. The symposium will be dedicated to current issues in education, profession, science and practice in the field of Disaster Risk Management and Fire Safety Engineering.
