As part of the international positioning of the CILIFO brand and the CILIFO project, the FINNOVA Foundation participated in the “Segovia Business Market” to exhibit and publicize the good practices of the CILIFO project. This took place within the framework of the conference entitled “Investment alternatives and support for business and entrepreneurial development”, given by the General Director of FINNOVA, Juan Manuel Revuelta, where he was able to present the CILIFO project, as well as to present the case of good practices of the “Firefighting Open Innovation Lab – CILIFO” incubator/accelerator, as an initiative for business development and entrepreneurship in the sector of forest fire prevention and extinction, adaptation and mitigation to climate change.
Within this framework, the CILIFO project was present in order to develop three of its main functions, contained in Activities 1 and 6, and entrusted to the FINNOVA Foundation, as a beneficiary partner of the project;
- Attracting entrepreneurs, start-ups and companies, as well as other agents of interest such as investors, collaborating entities, etc., in order to create sufficient mechanisms to promote open innovation in the sector of forest fire prevention and extinction, adaptation and mitigation to climate change;
