COASTAL Final conference | Marine@Ugent

COASTAL Final conference

COASTAL project is coming to an end and we would like to invite you to our final event where we will showcase COASTAL's contribution to rural developments, highlighting unique selling points and added value for practitioners and policymakers, launching the knowledge exchange forum and clarifying our exploitation route. 

COASTAL is a research and innovation project, a unique multi-actor collaboration of coastal and rural business entrepreneurs, administrations, stakeholders, and natural and social science experts to formulate and evaluate business solutions and policy recommendations aimed at improving the coastal-rural synergy to foster rural and coastal development while preserving the environment.

At the final event, open to the public, we will showcase all the outputs we are leaving as a legacy for people to use! This includes:

  • Best practices for boosting coastal-rural synergies
  • Roadmaps for specific regions
  • Models you can access free of charge 
  • All the data we produced
  • Policy recommendations
  • and much more!
