e-Shape is a H2020 project aiming to improve user uptake of Earth Observation data in Europe, by developing operational EO services and demonstrating the benefits of the EO pilots at national and international scale, across vertical markets (private and public), and amongst key user communities. E-SHAPE and SAFERS have 4 common partners (CERTH, CIMA, FMI and Riscognition). ARMINES (e-Shape project coordinator) is a member of SAFERS Advisory Board. Common activities involving SAFERS have been undertaken on co-design of EO applications. E-Shape is showcasing pilot applications in 6 thematic areas, including Disaster Management, under which SAFERS project will be able to contribute.
The Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC), coordinator of the Global Wildland Fire Network (GWFN) and the International Wildfire Preparedness Mechanism (IWPM), is serving the Science-Policy-Practitioners Interface (SPPI) by providing advisory services to countries – directly or through assistance of international organizations – in the development, application, adoption or acculturation of national fire management policies, strategies and implementation plans. Their Focus is on the involvement and capacity building of local communities in fire management and development of cross-sectoral institutional fire management capacities.

ENVISION aims to fulfil the need for continuous and systematic monitoring of agricultural land, shifting the focus from fragmented monitoring limited to specific fields and dates to territory-wide and all-year-round monitoring.
It uses heterogeneous types of available data and state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies for providing a fully automated and scalable toolbox of services, built-in close interaction with its future customers.
AFAN aims at formalising a European wildfire expert knowledge-sharing network focused on fire risk analysis (or assessment) and risk reduction. The initiative has the sub-objective to scale up existing regional and national and international knowledge and capacities, transfer them with the mission of shared mutual learning and create the basis of an operational network based on trust and support to generate an overall improvement of the European wildfire emergency response capacities and coordination.
