The origin of the REMIFOR Association (Euro-Mediterranean Network of Information and Training t- Risks Management) is linked t- the need of information transfer between European centers, national institutes, schools of firemen and civil protection centers enabling them t- take advantage of existing work at the level of exchanges and scientific collaboration

The aim of REMIFOR is the development of tools and solutions applied t- risks factors by using information and communication technologies in the field of distant training and their use in mobile operational modes


  • Training


  • Research


  • other

Activities carried out and in progress:

. developping a distant learning performant tool

. developping an information site in the field of risks

These applications enable t- integrate sustainable development objectives of economical actors (local and regional – signature of a contract of objectives with the PACA Regional Council in April 2004), t- occupy a position at the level of the great European projects and t- promote access t- qualification and employment
