R&D

We believe that the scientific and technological advances can be achieved through research and development. With this view, at Tecnosylva we have been investing in research since the beginning of the company, through internal, as well as regional, national and international projects. During the last years we have been actively participating in a multitude of research projects at national and European level. Some of these projects are:

HEIMDALL

Dates: 2017 – 2020

Scope: European (Horizon 2020)

Description: European project funded by the European Commission to develop a multi-hazard cooperative management tool for data exchange, response planning and scenario building. The scope of the project is to improve preparedness of agencies and the society to respond efficiently to crisis situations. With this in mind, the project provides the integration of existing tools and technologies with the aim of supporting response planning and the creation of realistic crisis scenarios.

H2020 INSURANCE

Dates: 2017 – 2020

Scope: Europeo (Horizon 2020)

Description: European project funded by the European Commission with the aim of operationalising the “Oasis Loss Modelling Framework” system that combines climate services with risk and loss information. It provides a standardised process for risk assessment that is able to calculate potential losses, define high risk areas and is capable to estimate economical losses through modelled scenarios.

PHAROS

Dates: 2013 – 2016

Scope: European (7th European Framework Project)

Descripción: European project funded by the European Commission with the aim of designing and implementing an innovative multi-hazard service platform which integrates space-based observation, satellite communications and navigation assets to provide sustainable pre-operational services for a wide variety of users in multi-application domains, such as early detection of risks and emergencies, environmental monitoring, risk and crisis management and population alerting. Potential users of the PHAROS platform are both institutional users, such as authorities and crisis managers (primary users) and non-institutional users, such as insurance companies and research groups (secondary users).

ALERT4ALL

Dates: 2011-2013

Scope: European (7th European Framework Project)

Description: European project funded by the European Commission with the aim of achieving significant improvements in the effectiveness of alert and communications systems in crisis by providing solutions to align alert procedures and processes to available and emerging communications technologies, trends in social behaviour, and use of new media.

PREVIEW

Dates: 2006 – 2009

Scope: European (6th European Framework Project)

Description: European project funded by the European Commission with the aim of developing at the European scale, new or enhanced information services for risk management in support of European Civil Protection Units and local or regional authorities, making the best use of the most advanced research and technology outcomes in Earth Observation. PREVIEW addressed the definition, the development and the validation in pre-operational conditions of information services to support the management of: Windstorms, Forest fires, Plain floods and Flash floods, Earthquake and Volcanic risks, Landslides and Industrial accidents.

WILDFIRENGINE

Dates: 2014 – 2016

Scope: National (EEA-GRANTS)

Description: Development of a tool to provide support in the preventive management of wildfires. This tool integrates risk analysis subsystems that take into account ecologic and economic impacts, and allow taking critical decisions during fire suppression activities.

PROMETEO

Dates: 2010 – 2014

Scope: National (CENIT)

Description: Development of technologies for wildfire firefighting as well as for the preservation of our forests.

PlatonModel4D

Dates: 2011-2014

Scope: National (CDTI)

Description: Development of an online platform for 3D, S3D and 4D services and the research and development of spatio-temporal mathematical modelling.
