FIRE Forum 2023

Join the FIRE Team and all sectoral stakeholders to discover FIRE roadmaps and discuss the way forward.

FIRE, the industry-led Forum for Innovation and Research in European Earth Observation, has the ambition to become the bridge between Earth Observation (EO) services and data and users across applications for different industries.

 

Cutting through a variety of six market sectors: agriculture, (wind) energy, infrastructure, marine, raw materials, and urban development, FIRE gathers different user communities to consult and establish a high-level roadmap. This will guide research & development, delivery and uptake of EO services in Europe.

The second round of FIRE Focus Group Discussions is a series of six expert meetups, one for each of the target market sectors: agriculture, (wind) energy, infrastructure, marine, raw materials, and urban development. The event series taking place between February and March 2022 builds up on the discussions and conclusions of the first focus group round in Autumn 2020 as well as the first FIRE Forum which took place on the 16th of June 2021. As during the first round, each of the focus groups is led by a leader from the sector: 

• COPA-COGECA for Agriculture

• WindEurope for Energy

• Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique for Marine

• Vital Infrastructure Arena for Infrastructure

• EIT Raw Materials for Raw materials

• SMURBS for Urban development

These discussions will contribute to the second FIRE Forum taking place in June 2022 and to the high-level roadmap for Research and Innovation strategy for Earth Observation in Europe.
