The project FIRE-IN has been designed to identify capability gaps from the point of view of practitioners in the field of fire and rescue, and to fill these gaps by implementing a structured mechanism to identify existing solutions or define RDI capability challenges that should be addressed in future call for projects.
Based on the identification of the capability gaps in work package WP1 involving practitioners gathered in 5 thematic working groups (TWG) and the screening for solutions carried out in work package WP2, the work package WP 3 “Collaboration with research, industry and standardization bodies and recommendations” aims at developing the interactions with research, industry and standardization bodies to validate the identified gaps and help expressing the needs for future research, development and innovation.
In the WP3, the first task, T3.1 “Consultation with industry, standardization and policy to prioritise RDI gaps” has been designed to prepare the ground for the interactions with industry, standardization bodies and policy makers that are foreseen in WP3.
The deliverable D3.1 presented in this document describes the approach and the procedure for interacting with industry and RTOs in the WP3. It is mainly based on the work carried out in T3.1 and the interactions with the WP1 and WP2, in particular the methodology for the screening of possible solutions.
This deliverable D3.1 is organised in 3 parts:
1) The methodological approach to establish the interactions with industry and RTOs
2) The concept of “Request for ideas”
3) The recommendations for implementation of the “request for ideas” procedure.
