EPICURO (European Partnership for Innovative Cities within an Urban Resilience Outlook) is a project that focuses on strengthening urban resilience and adaptation to climate change - especially floods.

The project aims to foster multi-actor transnational cooperation and enhance knowledge about technology solutions available to local communities, as well as to increase Civil Protection teams’ specialisation and enhance policy and institutional commitment for increasing public support and citizens’ capacities for building resilience within their communities.


The project’s main activities are as follows:

  • To detect EU and international best practices and technologies of urban resilience to disasters
  • To train civil protection teams on the most effective and efficient use of available technology
  • To actively involve policy-makers and decision-makers in the development of at least 1 pilot actions in each involved territorial entity
  • To inform and train citizens about the meaning of resilience and about how they can contribute to a more resilient city
