Le Bouche à Oreille, Rue Félix Hap 11, 1040 Etterbeek, Brussels, Belgium

The final event of the project RESIN - Climate Resilient Cities and Infrastructures will take place on 9th October 2018 in Brussels. RESIN city partners (Bratislava, Bilbao, Paris and Greater Manchester) will share their experience as users of the tools and methodologies that the project has produced, including a European climate risk map, a risk-based vulnerability assessment methodology, a database of all kinds of adaptation options, and an online decision support tool for planning and implementing adaptation actions. The tools will be demonstrated in real-time, project partners will share policy-relevant messages for adaptation action, and all participants will explore future pathways for research and practice.

Speakers will include Aleksandra Kazmierczak (European Environment Agency), Roger Street (Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford), Peter Bosch (TNO, RESIN project coordinator), Jeremy Carter (University of Manchester), Pier Vellinga (University of Wageningen), Pere Malgrat (Aquatec (SUEZ Advanced Solutions)), Ingrid Konrad (Chief Architect, city of Bratislava), Eira Rosberg (Lahti, Finland), UN-Habitat and many more from the RESIN team. The event is co-organised by the team from the related RESCCUE project, and speakers from the projects EU-CIRCLE and BRIGAID will contribute their knowledge from across the European research landscape in the field of resilience-building.

You are advised to register early and book your accommodation in Brussels, as the conference takes place during the European Week of Regions and Cities, so accommodation may book up early.
