The matchbox concept

Protagonists

 

Instead of just listening, participants get actively involved by doing experiments themselves or becoming part of an experiment. Acquire specialist knowledge that is not in any textbook.

Questions

  • Urban densification?

  • Resilience and protection of critical infrastructures?

  • Digital change in civil security?

  • Safe innovative building materials?

  • Building information modeling?

  • New energy risks?

and enable discussions at eye level.

Participate

Instead of just listening, participants get actively involved by doing experiments themselves or becoming part of an experiment. Acquire specialist knowledge that is not in any textbook.

Understand

matchbox, as an interactive form of knowledge transfer, shows how the world of fire protection and civil security is connected - vividly and comprehensibly. Your own actions and experiences create eye-opening effects and bring about a sustainable learning outcome.

Dialog

matchbox is aimed at architects, operators, specialist planners, builders, experts, government officials, fire departments and those responsible for safety. Take advantage of the opportunity to deepen your knowledge in dialogue with experts.

"It makes a difference whether I only use the pure legal texts when assessing projects or whether I have ever experienced a real fire of building materials or climbed through a window myself." - Participant voice

Guided tours

Tours on the matchbox are more than just tours of the site. In small groups, the participants discuss selected experiments with a specific topic and industry focus. Our tour guides will work with you to develop questions and solutions and put them into context again and again with targeted experiments - for additional insights specifically for your industry.
