Moving forward: update on FIRE-RES Open Innovation Challenge submissions

The application period for the FIRE-RES Open Innovation Challenge (OIC) ended on 19 November 2023. All eligible solutions have now entered the evaluation and section processes.

These originate from 24 different countries and span nearly all the FIRE-RES OIC themes. The majority of the solutions submitted propose innovative equipment, technological solutions and information processing products, but a good number also aim to develop methodologies and tools that address social challenges.

The final list of selected solutions will be announced early in the New Year. These innovations are then going to receive acceleration support and, where appropriate, the opportunity to test in a realistic environment.
