Coastal Partnership East is linked with a number of universities around the country who are leading work on topics such as coastal erosion, sediment systems, long term modelling and big data.

We and our partners help to feed in information where we can, and we also benefit from their shared learning.

Take a look at just some of the research that we are connected with:

The iCOASST project will help forecast what the UK’s coastline will look like in the future, up to 100 years’ time. (

Bournemouth University are measuring sediment processes using an X-band radar at Thorpeness, on the Suffolk coast.

The Cambridge Coastal Research Unit are researching how intertidal landforms provide Coastal Flood and Erosion protection
