FIRE-IN introduces the National Hubs Concept. The National Hubs Concept is a proposition of FIRE-IN consortium in order to overcome the limitations of COVID-19 meetings and travelling. Instead of organizing or participating to large European or International events, a series of smaller more local (national) events will be organized by the partners of FIRE-IN for the next 6 to 8 months.
Consolidation of the outcomes at national level with dossiers on solutions & technologies accessible on eFIRE-IN but also promotion of expressed needs for new solutions and for new standards (capability challenges).
Dissemination part to present the outcomes of FIRE-IN, the network and the mechanisms to reinforce interactions between technology suppliers and practitioners
Presentation of innovative solutions and technologies developed in the country organizing the event
