Knowledge exchange among BwN coastal labs and C5A WP on cocreation of the approach.


Benefit from participating in the C5A project:

Exchange of knowledge, new insights in planning, monitoring and managing measures on a state of the art level, improvements in sustainable future coastal defense schemes and/or integrated strategies with respect to effects of climate change on sea level rise.
