The paper describes a novel approach, based on the concept of resilience of socio-technological interdependent infrastructures comprised of (1) interdependent physical systems, (2) social infrastructure composed of employees that run the infrastructures, and the population that uses the outputs (products and services) of these systems and lives surrounded by them. This concept is applied to transforming existing territories/ municipalities, designing new cities and developing new regions into supraresilient smart regions/cities of the 21-st century based on mobility, digitization, artificial intelligence (robotization), and information technology (IoT).
