European University for Smart Urban Coastal Sustainability
The EU-CONEXUS teaching, research and innovation programmes include the totality of social, economic and environmental problems and opportunities that coastline areas are facing today. EU-CONEXUS is focused on urban and semi‐urban coastlines because they are increasingly densely populated areas and very important, for inter alia, aquaculture and fisheries, energy, tourism. At the same time these coastlines are most vulnerable areas with regard to the consequences of climate change.Discover
