Description

The nowadays worldwide wildfire context is defined by extreme fire behaviour characterized by rapid fire spread, intense burning, long-range fire spotting and unpredictable shifts. Extreme wildfire events have an extraordinary socio-economic impact in terms of both loss of human life and economic damage. The main problems that faced firefighters operators are: lack of reliable early-time fire detection tools; unpredictability of fire ignition and unpredictable behavior of extreme events. The Italian company has developed a software solution contributing to the reduction of environment and economic damages caused by forest fires. The solution is an end-to-end Decision Support System (DSS) , that aims to support actions in the three main phases of fire management: 1. forest fire prevention and mitigation, 2. event management and 3. post-fire recovery. The solution assures, through satellite images, in-situ ancillary data and weather numerical predictions, timely and reliable fire forecast information. The main target market are public administrations responsible for fire monitoring, prevention, management and damage mitigation; privates as insurance companies and financial entities are also potential customers. The Italian company is interested in bein involved as a partner or as a supplier, and finding a potential consortium that could include from public administrations to private companies, involved in fire monitoring, prevention, management and damage mitigation, interested in submitting a proposal under the mentioned call, priority area 1, Increasing climate ambition: cross-sectoral challenges. Company has recently received funding for also developing feasibility study outside EU (Australia target country), and would be interested in both research collaboration (as a partner in projects proposals), or technical collaborations (as a supplier).

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
