The transdisciplinary project NORM systematically examines the Austrian regulations, laws and standards for open spaces and interiors in relation to human health and well-being. The most representative urban typologies and open space structures are simulated (microclimate, building physics) based on climate scenarios to understand future conditions and their impact on human health and well-being. A policy guide is elaborated in order to adapt and complement existing regulations, laws and standards step by step and incorporate and promote climate resilience in urban design

SECURES will provide targeted support to Austria’s policy makers by analysing challenges and opportunities arising for our electricity system in the future, acting as safeguard for securing a reliable, sustainable and cost-efficient electricity supply in times of climate change. Thanks to tailored in-depth analysis and an intense stakeholder dialogue we will help to solve con-flicts in policy targets for supply security, decarbonisation needs and our economy, all affected by climate impacts.
