Project Description

Why this project?

Crises at local, regional and international level have become increasingly frequent over the last two decades. This has raised the interest in resilience, testing the capacities of different stakeholders to cope, adapt and build back better. Multiple crises such as the pandemic, disasters, energy or climate change highlighted inequalities in the public, private and civil society sectors and at all institutional levels in the way they are prepared to face unexpected crisis and to deal with uncertainty. Research and Innovation (R&I) can play a key role by providing a basis for a more flexible and responsive capacity of stakeholders in crisis periods, informing policy development and decision-making, and thus, strengthening resilience and preparedness for future events.


  • Map existing policy relevant European R&I findings with high potential to inform policy making for economic and social resilience, and to help address societal challenges.
  • Define methodologies and guidelines for testing in how far the identified R&I findings can inform policies addressing national, regional and local needs.
  • Implement 10 pilot cases called 'Future Resilience Labs', where multiple stakeholders will discuss and test evidence-based strategies tailored to their specific context and matching their local needs. The experimentation will be done in a co-creation environment applying Foresight and participative methodologies.
  • Develop a Knowledge Base of the successfully tested research findings with high capacity to inform policy actors and a Toolbox of methods for testing policy relevant research findings
