Definition and Creation of a Common Knowledge Base for Forest Fires
The DELFI Project
The aim of the DELFI Project is to organise and disseminate existing knowledge on forest fires, aiming to bridge the gap between researchers and users. The objectives of the project are to:
create a common vocabulary on forest fire terms
review past and on-going EC projects on forest fires and related technologies and present state-of-the-art
strengthen the exchange of knowledge between European researchers
increase multi-disciplinarity of approach
promote results and tools of European researches
identify areas of further research
If your work is related to aspects of forest fires, you are invited to join the DELFI network and inform us of your research work or of your fire management needs. Please refer to the attached form for details.
