WHO WE ARE
The RESIN consortium consists of scientists at the forefront of urban climate adaptation research (such as the University of Manchester, TNO, Tecnalia) and in risk assessment of critical infrastructures (Fraunhofer, TNO, Siemens). In the team, these organisations represent the development of fundamental and applied knowledge on climate adaptation.
The highly interdisciplinary team includes consultancies such as ARCADIS and BC3, who are experienced in delivering this knowledge to cities and other customers. Siemens and ITTI bring in their long-standing experience in delivering technical support for urban asset management.
A key part of the team is made up of four cities from various parts of Europe; Paris (France), Manchester (United Kingdom), Bratislava (Slovakia) and Bilbao (Spain). Each core city will work closely with a local research institute in a cyclical process of development, piloting and evaluation: the School of Engineering of the City of Paris (EIVP), the University of Manchester, the Comenius University of Bratislava and the Basque Centre for Climate Change.
ICLEI will coordinate the interface between research and practice and will mobilise its wide network of local governments to disseminate all outcomes to cities and relevant stakeholders throughout Europe. NEN, as member of CEN, the European standardisation body, will take the work forward towards formal standardisation. Finally, Uniresearch will bring project coordination capacities to ensure a successful delivery.
