rePLANT - Implementation of collaborative strategies for integrated forest and fire management

Coordinator: Navigator Forest Portugal
UTAD/CITAB Coordinator: Maria Emília Calvão Moreira da Silva

The main purpose of this mobilizing project is to contribute to the greater valorization of the Portuguese forest through the implementation of collaborative strategies for integrated forest and fire management. These strategies will give rise to new products, processes and services, largely supported by digital technologies, contributing to the reduction of fire risk and introducing a high degree of innovation, with a view to improving forestry and energy companies' management and decision-making processes. The positive impacts will be felt throughout the chain, namely in service providers and forest producers, with enormous benefits for the economy of rural areas. RePLANt will also contribute to consolidate the national market in technologies and equipment for the forestry sector, enhancing its evolution through the development of new innovative products and services, with export potential.
