Regions for climate change resilience through Innovation, Science and Technology

Execution Period: 01/2023 – 12/2027 (on going)

Approved Budget: 25 M€


RESIST has emerged from the need to make regions more resilient to climate change. The project will test climate change adaptation (CCA) solutions in four EU regions: Southwest Finland, Central Denmark, Catalonia and Central Portugal. Know-how and adaptation pathways will be transferred from the four demonstrator regions to eight twinned regions through mutual-learning activities and immersive digital twins.

The project will engage 12 European regions with different socioeconomic profiles that will test adaptation solutions to five key climate challenges: floods, droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, and soil erosion.

O projeto envolve:

Exchange of experience and transfer of know-how from more experienced to less experienced regions.
