Integrated Technological and Information Platform for Wildfire Management
Funded by the EU Horizon 2020 Green Deal program and coordinated by Università Telematica Pegaso, SILVANUS project includes 49 partners from the European Union, Brazil, Indonesia, and Australia, with a budget of €24 million for a period of 42 months.
The key output of the project is the release of a climate resilient forest management platform to prevent and suppress forest fire. SILVANUS relies on environmental, technical and social sciences experts to support regional and national authorities responsible for wildfire management in their respective countries. SILVANUS scientists and research engineers will aid the civil protection authorities to efficiently monitor forest resources, to evaluate biodiversity, to generate more accurate fire risk indicators, and promote safety regulations among the local population affected by wildfire through awareness campaigns.
The building blocks of the SILVANUS platform architecture
The cornerstones of the SILVANUS platform, from the citizen engagement app, the AR/VR training toolkit for firefighters to fire detection systems using state-of-the-art innovative technology
12 pilots in 11 countries all over the world, including EU Member States, Australia, Indonesia and Brazil where SILVANUS platform will be tested in diverse and versatile fire danger scenarios
Partners from the European Union, Brazil, Indonesia, and Australia
Citizen Engagement is a Vital Branch in the Development of Our Platform
Within the activities of wildfire prevention and preparedness, SILVANUS Project is organizing live and online citizen engagement campaigns, where citizens are informed through the dissemination of posters on project objectives and on the best advice for wildfire suppression and prevention.
