The main objective of the Project Centre was to develop decision criteria for preventive post-fire forest management. PHOENIX had the following specific objectives:   

• to develop a sound database gathering state-of-the-art existing scientific knowledge concerning the fire characteristics of the different forest types and respective species;

• to develop a set of criteria which can be used to classify forest types in terms of the associated fire hazard and resilience;

• to define the potential and limitation of the various post-fire management options;

• to help developing the transfer mechanisms needed between research and its application by end-users in this specific issue.
