FIRE-RES Open Innovation Challenge

In recent years, Europe has experienced a significant increase in the frequency and intensity of wildfires. These extreme wildfires have resulted in devastating consequences, including the loss of life, destruction of natural habitats, damage to infrastructure, and the release of harmful emissions impacting air quality.

FIRE-RES has opened a new competition for innovators combating Extreme Wildfire Events in Europe. The FIRE-RES Open Innovation Challenge (OIC) is intended for experts, researchers, technologists, entrepreneurs, and innovators to contribute to tackling wildfires in Europe. Winners will receive funding to continue and scale up the work while connecting with the FIRE-RES Living Labs network.
