THESEUS (Innovative technologies for safer European coasts in a changing climate) is the largest Integrated Project within coastal risk assessment and mitigation funded by the European Commission (6,530,000 €) and consists of 31 partner institutes. The project will develop during the next four years a systematic approach to deliver both a low-risk coast for human use and healthy coastal habitats for evolving coastal zones subjected to multiple factors.
On the project description pages you will find more detailed information. The general coordinator of THESEUS is Barbara Zanuttigh from the University of Bologna. The project started the first of December 2009.
