CILIFO (Iberian Center for Research and Fight against Forest Fires) will be presented as one of the projects of entrepreneurship, self-employment and return of talent, by the Director General of the Finnova Foundation, Juan Manuel Revuelta, being an example of the promotion of the creation of durable and quality employment in the area and the reduction of the economic cost of fires creating a rural economy linked to the landscape.

Currently, youth unemployment has reached more than worrying levels. The European Union and the governments of the different member countries have implemented measures to try to solve the problem through entities such as the European Social Fund and the European Commission.
