Digital tools for suistanable and green societes

Our Green Lab supports projects that develop and evaluate innovative digital solutions to support suistanable and green societes, with particular focus on raising the citizens' environmental education, engagement and awareness, and forest fires prevention, protection and mangement. 


Sylvanus is a European research funded project that aims to provide an integrated Technological and Information Platform for wildfire Management


SILVANUS envisages to deliver an environmentally sustainable and climate resilient forest management platform through innovative
capabilities to prevent and combat against the ignition and spread of forest fires. The platform will cater to the demands of efficient
resource utilisation and provide protection against threats of wildfires encountered globally.


The project will establish synergies
between (i) environmental; (ii) technology and (iii) social science experts for enhancing the ability of regional and national
authorities to monitor forest resources, evaluate biodiversity, generate more accurate fire risk indicators and promote safety
regulations among citizens through awareness campaigns. The novelty of SILVANUS lies in the development and integration of
advanced semantic technologies to systematically formalise the knowledge of forest administration and resource utilisation.


Additionally, the platform will integrate a big-data processing framework capable of analysing heterogeneous data sources
including earth observation resources, climate models and weather data, continuous on-board computation of multi-spectral video
streams. Also, the project integrates a series of sensor and actuator technologies using innovative wireless communication
infrastructure through the coordination of aerial vehicles and ground robots.


The technological platform will be complemented with the integration of resilience models, and the results of environmental and
ecological studies carried out for the assessment of fire risk indicators based on continuous surveys of forest regions. The surveys are
designed to take into consideration the expertise and experience of frontline fire fighter organisations who collectively provide
support for 47,504x104 sq. meters of forest area within Europe and across international communities. The project innovation will be
validated through 11 pilot demonstrations across Europe and internationally using a two sprint cycle.
