Increasing Europe’s resilience to crises and disasters is a topic of highest political concern in the EU and its Member States and Associated Countries. Regarding the specific case of transport systems, it can be said that those have developed a prominent safety and business critical nature, in view of which current management practices have shown evidence of important limitations in terms of resilience management. Furthermore, enhancing resilience in transport systems is considered imperative for two main reasons: such systems provide critical support to every socio-economic activity and are currently themselves one of the most important economic sectors and secondly, the paths that convey people, goods and information, are the same through which risks are propagated. RESOLUTE is answering those needs, by proposing to conduct a systematic review and assessment of the state of the art of the resilience assessment and management concepts, as a basis for the deployment of an European Resilience Management Guide (ERMG), taking into account that resilience is not about the performance of individual system elements but rather the emerging behaviour associated to intra and inter system interactions. The final goal of RESOLUTE is to adapt and adopt the identified concepts and methods from the defined guidelines for their operationalization and evaluation when addressing Critical Infrastructure (CI) of the Urban Transport System (UTS), through the implementation of the RESOLUTE Collaborative Resilience Assessment and Management Support System (CRAMSS), that adopts a highly synergic approach towards the definition of a resilience model for the next-generation of collaborative emergency services and decision making process.

RESOLUTE: RESilience management guidelines and Operationalization appLied to Urban Transport Environment
1. Conduct a systematic review and assessment of the state of the art of the resilience assessment and management concepts, national guidelines and their implementation strategies in order to develop a conceptual framework for creating/ maintaining Urban Transport Systems 2. Develop European Resilience Management Guidelines (ERMG) 3. Operationalize and validate the ERMG by implementing the RESOLUTE Collaborative Resilience Assessment and Management Support Systems (CRAMSS) for Urban Transport Systems addressing Road ans Urban Rail Infrastructures 4. Enhance resilience through improved support of human decision making processes, partcularly by training professionals and civil users on the ERMG and the RESOLUTE system 5. Adoption of the ERMG at EU and Associated Countries level

RESOLUTE H2020: STATE OF THE ART REVIEW AND ASSESSMENT REPORT
This document produces the first fundamental basis for the development of RESOLUTE’s methodology. It provides a comprehensive overview of concepts, notions and views on resilience, as well as other related aspects of systems theories and risk management. Resilience is a far reaching idea and has attracted the attention of a wide range of scientific domains. The definition of the concept varies somewhat according to literature domains but bears on a common need to address high complexity, variability and uncertainty that increasingly challenges current risk management practices. Literature often denotes that within many of such domains the term resilience has been used mainly as leverage to re-launch previously existing arguments and views, under a merely renewed terminology. Nevertheless, literature shows that significant advances have been made in risk management approaches, tools and assessment, even if not always grasping the full extent of their implications towards coping with complexity and fast pace changing operations. The domain of resilience engineering stands out by addressing resilience as an overarching concept, aiming to develop its theoretical foundations beyond its specific application to industrial sectors and risk domains. While empirical evidence clearly supports the foundations proposed by resilience engineering, specific metrics and methodologies remain sparse. Various proposals for resilience assessment were found, even if originating and focusing on specific domain needs, as opposed to an overall comprehensive assessment. This emphasises the need for research efforts on integrated and comprehensive tools to support the management of system resilience. A draft conceptual framework is proposed and will be used to support the continued work under work package 2. This work will mainly focus on further analysing the contents of this document, culminating with the development of thorough and applied guidance for RESOLUTE methodology. This will be the subject of Deliverable 2.2 (Synthesis and scoping for RESOLUTE) on month 8 of project development ...

RESOLUTE H2020: GUIDELINES METHODOLOGY
In this Deliverable the methodology for the development of the ERMG is defined. A step-wise approach is suggested, mainly consisting of the following steps: - Planning the guidelines - Information collection and review - Guidelines formulation - Review of guidelines - Implementation and impact evaluation - Further actions These steps are described in detail within the Chapters 3 to 8 in the present document. Chapter 1 provides an introduction, while Chapter 2 discusses guidelines methodologies in general. Finally, in Chapter 9, conclusions are drawn. This document is expected to set the general framework of the work to be undertaken within WP3, in terms of defining ERMG and adapting them to the Urban Transport System environment, for testing and verification.
