The Frank Rushbrook Fund

Dr Frank Rushbrook made a remarkable contribution to the field of Fire Safety Engineering, not only here at Edinburgh, but throughout the UK and further afield. His influence and vision are reflected in the vibrant Fire Safety Engineering teaching and research activities that we see today in Edinburgh. The BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering has, with the help of a generous donation bequeathed in Frank’s legacy, has created the Frank Rushbrook Fund. We’re using Frank’s vision and generous legacy to reach out to alumni and grow a Fund to honour Frank’s memory long into the future. This fund will be used to enhance the experience of our postgraduate students, through facilitating global partnerships, teambuilding activities, and conference travel.
