Athens (EuroGEO 2022), 8 December 2022
The FIRE Team can proudly announce the extension of the project until February 2023 and the organisation of the FIRE Forum 2023 from 1st to 3rd February 2023. FIRE Forum 2023 will bring together all stakeholders to discover the main project result – the roadmap for Research and Innovation agenda for Earth Observation to better serve FIRE focus sectors. In addition, attendees of the FIRE Forum 2023 will discuss the way forward for future involvement of users in setting Europe’s priorities for Earth Observation.
FIRE Forum 2023 will consist of six events, one dedicated to each of the sector. To continue ensuring a truly open dialogue, these events will be held fully online and will be accessible for all. Each day from 1st to 3rd February 2023 will consist of two sessions – a morning and an afternoon session. This will allow stakeholders to follow either the sessions of their choice or emerge into the full spectrum of FIRE by joining all six discussions.

As previously reported, FIRE, the industry-led Forum for Innovation and Research in European Earth Observation, started its activities in December 2019. It established a user community across different industries, namely agriculture, infrastructure, marine and maritime, raw materials, urban development, and wind energy, to shape the Research and Innovation Strategy for Earth Observation solutions in Europe. FIRE also designed a novel ‘EO Evangelist’ programme through which seven ‘EO influencers’ promoted the adoption of EO solutions in FIRE focus sectors.
Two rounds of focus group events were each followed by a FIRE Forum, advancing in the discussions and identification of gaps and challenges, the future evolution of each of the sectors, as well as the Earth Observation capabilities. The result of these consultations has been thoroughly analysed and incorporated in delivering the FIRE Roadmap, which will be presented and discussed at the FIRE Forum 2023.
