What is IFRF?
IFRF is the International Flame Research Foundation and was founded in 1948. We are the research network for the combustion and energy community. We facilitate access to research expertise across the world and share the results with our community.
Our aim is to advance applied combustion research and promote collaboration throughout the international arena. To do this we have a membership network and access to key organisations from the combustion and energy sectors.
