Research network on resilient communities


Join us


The RESILIENT project aims at building a Research Network on Resilient Communities through

  • the development of a collaborative net of researchers for knowledge exchange and capacity building between network partners
  • forge new multi- and interdisciplinary research and training initiatives on critical aspects of resilient communities undertaken by the network members in collaboration
  • encourage the dialogue between academia and civil society through citizen science approaches, which is needed to enhance the resilience of local communities in practice.

This network will engage researchers from all career stages, as well as non-academic stakeholders, and civil society, through citizen science approaches, enabling the empowerment of citizens to tackle local or national problems that can foster community resilience. Results of RESILIENT project will contribute to the UN's 2030 Agenda which call for societal transformation towards sustainability, with a specific focus on making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable - SDG11.
