The Open Talent session "Great Fires of the Twentieth Century: Grenfell Tower in London", with Mercedes Lago, Business Manager at Efectis, will take place at the Tech Talent Center (c/Badajoz, 73, Barcelona), on Thursday 28 November at 7 pm.

The fire which took place at Grenfell Tower in London on 14 June 2017 was one of the worst tragedies in recent decades, with 72 fatalities. Based on the data from the official investigation and the results of mid-scale and large-scale fire trials, Efectis has conducted a study to reconstruct and analyse the consequences of the accident, using fire simulation and thermomechanical calculation tools.
