The ultimate objective of the FIRE-IN project is to raise the security level of the EU citizens by improving the Fire & rescue services capabilities to address various forms of hazards, natural or manmade. In this aspect, FIRE-IN joins its forces with practitioners, experts, professional networks, standardization bodies, research and technology organizations and industries, public and private in order to reach its objective and provide the latest technology to all involved parties.
Research and Technology organizations are an essential part of innovation and technological as well as societal advancement. For the implementation of the objectives of the FIRE-IN project research institutes (public and private) are of utmost importance. They provide potential solutions and future ideas based on scientific evidence, technology development and conceptual work. Researchers are grounding their work on factual data collection, experiments, simulation and modelling approaches as well as theoretical and conceptual design for current and future challenges of our society. These encompass addressing future gaps in the fields of SAR & Emergency response, Structure Fires, Landscape Fires, Natural hazard and CBRNE. The provision of dedicated, scientific solid solutions for the future and critical perspectives on the status quo are core competencies of research institutes. For the application of scientific knowledge basic and applied research needs to be linked, verified, adopted and realized in partnership with other stakeholders e.g. practitioners, industry partners.
The e-FIRE-IN collaborative platform is a unique tool through which the establishment of connections between industry, research organizations, practitioners and experts is possible.
