SMR Stakeholder Dialogue

Thessaloniki City Hall, Leof. Vasileos Georgiou 1
The Stakeholder Dialogue will bring together the SMR project Tier 1 and 2 cities and their stakeholders to exchange knowledge and experience with the latest group of cities to join the project: Tier 3. This event will launch the five completed tools: the Resilience Maturity Model, Risk Systemicity Questionnaire and Resilience Engagement and Communication Tool, the Simulation Model and Policy Tool.

The SMR project has been working for just over two years to develop a suite of tools to help cities enhance their resilience. These tools have been developed in close cooperation between seven partner cities of Glasgow, San Sebastian, Kristiansand, Rome, Riga, Bristol and Vejle, SMR's four university partners, ICLEI Europe and standardization body DIN.

The cities have been working with researchers to develop five strategic support and discussion formats that the cities are using to identify and select policies they should implement to address weaknesses in their resilience management, to develop long-term resilience strategies as well as structures for cross-departmental cooperation outside of the usual 'silos'.

Now that the tools are being finalised, they will be shared with a wider group of cities at a Stakeholder Dialogue event in Thessaloniki, Greece. Three tools are already available to cities: the Resilience Maturity Model, Risk Systemicity Questionnaire and Resilience Engagement and Communication Tool. Two further tools: a Simulation Model and a Policy Tool of Resilience Policies will be completed before the event.

Information for Tier 3 cities: Travel and accommodation for one attendee will be reimbursed by the SMR project up to a maximum threshold, which will be confirmed by Clara Grimes, ICLEI ( Additional participants are welcome to attend on a self-funded basis.

Evening programme: A social programme will be provided for project partners and Tier 3 cities following the event, free of charge.
