Innovative technologies for safer European coasts in a changing climate
THESEUS will develop a systematic approach to delivering both a low-risk coast for human use and healthy habitats for evolving coastal zones subject to multiple change factors. The innovative combined mitigation and adaptation technologies to be considered will include ecologically-based mitigation measures, hydro-morphodynamic techniques , actions to reduce the impact on society and economy and GIS-based software to support defense planning.
