LifeTEC aims at improving forest fire fighting using Electronic and Communications Technologies. LifeTEC pursues a twofold objective:

  • To reduce the detection time of forest fires.
  • To improve the efficiency of the fighting forces ensuring communications and geolocation.

From Farm to Fork


The social objective of the project is to provide tools that will improve the quality of life in rural areas and help to fix the population there. These tools will be human-centred designed: they will target the needs demanded by the potential users, they will be tested by them and tuned to their requirements.

The scientific-technical objective is to demonstrate the viability of using next-generation wireless technologies for the provision of services specifically designed for people who live, or who would consider living, in rural areas, by conducting a pilot.
