As the heat wave descends and the EEL team gravitate towards the beach, we would like to round up on what we consider as another successful year for the research lab.
The team have presented at five conferences including ICEE in Kobe Japan and staff have presented twelve invited talks including FireFit, British Science Festival, UK Home Office, EIS Tokyo Heat Workshop and UK Fire R&D.
We have written eleven funding applications of which four have been successful in recieving funding. The team have produced three commissioned reports for the English Institute of Sport, BASES and the Fire Brigades Union. We have had one PhD completion by Ash Willmott and hope to have a few more in 2018/19.
We also continue to work on research consultancy projects with Fire Brigades Union, UK Fire R&D, East Sussex Fire & Rescue, KuduSmart, Para-Monte and Cosinuss. While the consultancy team have helped support a number of athletes going to Marathon de Sables, Machu Picchu Peru, Aconcagua Chile, MdS Peru and the Coastal Challenge Costa Rica.
