ESTIA: collaborative platform for emergencies in aree sparse

The ESTIA project is an innovative product-service solution for earthquake-related housing emergency in ‘aree sparse’, meaning all those areas far from the main urban centres, where housing emergencies cannot be tackled through standard procedures (i.e. large makeshift camps). The groundwork of the project was the collaboration with two external partners: AcellTec Ltd and Protezione Civile …
