EDGE finally contributes to the Common impact assessment (WP3).


International research institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) aims at the analysis of natural and socioeconomic systems and advancing their resilience.

Role in the project: IIASA leads WP 1 on knowledge consolidation and integration, collecting knowledge and information from the IAs and the wider WFRM community to consolidate these insights into the FIRELOGUE platform. Also, this WP investigates and assesses (in-)consistencies in the WFRM approaches identified by IAs and translates these insights into valuable starting points for dialogue workshops conducted within and across Working Groups in WP4, where IIASA guides the work on insurance. By leading the analysis of dialogue forums in WP5, IIASA conducts comprehensive discourse analysis of WG workshops, identifying patterns and clusters in WFRM.


INESCTEC is an Associated Laboratory with over 30 years of experience in R&D and technology transfer. The activity at INESC TEC runs under the knowledge to value production chain paradigm: knowledge and results generated at basic research are typically injected in technology transfer projects and, therefore, receive added social relevance.

Role in the project: INESCTEC leads the FIRELOGUE technology thematic strand.


TIEMS prepares the world for emergencies by being a global forum for education, training, certification, and policy for emergency and disaster management. TIEMS does not respond to emergencies, but we ensure that others are ready to respond. This is important internationally because some parts of the world otherwise have limited support for preparation.

Role in the project: TIEMS is leading the Civil Protection Working Group, but TIEMS wildfire Experts also contribute to all Firelogue Work Packages.
