NORDRESS is divided into 6 Workpackages:
- WP 1 Administration
- WP 2 Training and Mobility through the Nordic Societal Security Academy and Mobility grants
- WP3 Individual resilience
- WP 4 Community resilience
- WP 5 Infrastructure resilience
- WP 6 Societal resilience
Each WP is further divided into tasks, that will be carried out by teams, consisting of academics, other experts and students. These are organised so as to facilitate transfer of knowledge between disciplines, work-places and countries, and the aim is to create networks that will last beyond the lifetime of the Centre of Excellence.
Integration between the WPs is emphasized to broaden the scope of problem solving across usual boundaries. NORDRESS has a wide selection of experts who can form unusual constellations to strengthen societal resilience.
