Due to emerging challenges of climate change and, most recently, of the COVID-19 pandemic, the RESIST project has set itself the goal of identifying critical infrastructures in Austria and specifying their resilience via the components 'vulnerability' and ' adaptive capacity'.

RESIST provides empirical evidence for the named objectives through (1) a clear glossary of terms, (2) a web-based document and text analysis, (3) online surveys of experts in practice (in Austrian urban regions) as well as from science (various disciplines) and various workshops with interested experts from practice and science.
