The Smart Mature Resilience project has developed a European Resilience Management Guideline for resilience-building in cities, with a particular focus on the three challenges of climate change, critical infrastructure and social dynamics. This guideline is supported by five tools: the Resilience Maturity Model, Resilience Information Portal, Risk Systemicity Questionnaire, City Resilience Dynamics Model and Resilience Building Policies. The tools are now available for the cities to use. SMR is holding four regional workshops to share these tools with the project's group of Tier 3 cities as well as new "Tier 4" cities.

The regional workshop for Scandinavian cities will be held in Kristiansand and will focus on the uptake of SMR tools for tackling relevant hazards for Scandinavia/Northern Europe, water management, extreme flooding events and failure of critical infrastructure. Training will be delivered on the SMR tools and collective feedback will be gathered on the European Resilience Management Guideline,

The event is aimed at cities from Scandinavia and from the Tier 2 and Tier 3 groups of SMR and further Scandinavian cities with a view to potentially joining the SMR Tier 4.

Confirmed cities so far include Kristiansand, Vejle, Oslo, Stavanger and Malmö.
