This is aimed through networking activities with five top-class leading counterparts at EU level; IMPERIAL COLLEGE, WAGENINGEN UNIVERSITY, PAU COSTA FOUNDATION, FRENCH GENERAL DIRECTORATE OF CIVILSECURITY AND CRISIS MANAGEMENT and NIMES-Metropole, which represent a multifaceted, but complementary and synergistic, ‘geography’ of R&I-philosophies and approaches, comprising:

  • Two leading Academic institutes in the area of fire safety andintegrated fire management;
  • A leading Foundation in investigating fires and communities-engagement;
  • A Governmental Agencyleading the EU-effort in operationally combating Forest Fires;
  • An Agglomeration of Municipalities providing the tangible example oflocal governance in Forest Fires;
  • A representation of both Member States and an Associated Country;
  • A linking of the European Research Area (ERA) in a “compass” fashion: from north (UK) to central Europe (FR, NL), to the west (ES), and to the Mediterraneanbiogeographical region (ES, FR, CY) and its South-Eastern area (CY).

The networking-for-excellence and twinning-contributions of the internationally-leading Advanced Partners in knowledge-transfer and capacity-building, focus on both EUC and within and for its surrounding targeted stakeholders from public governance, industry/entrepreneurship and civic society, at local and regional levels. It is hence scoped to raise the profile and reputation of EUC to such a level of ERA-excellence that it will be able to become alighthouse of spreading fire-science excellence in Cyprus and the SE Mediterranean, as well as to nurture a culture of societal fire-safety.
