The goal of the IQP was to show that the implementation of performance-based fire protection practices accompanying a transition from a "meet the code" approach to fire protection towards a system which establishes explicit performance goals requires a specific fire protection engineering education and a change in fire safety culture. Interviews with experts on fire protection in Germany conducted during the author's year abroad at the Technical University Darmstadt supplied the bulk information necessary to write this paper.
