The Space for Shore Consortium is fully funded by the European Space Agency (“Coastal Erosion” / ITT 9219”) and aims at setting up operational services for coastal erosion monitoring designed by and for end-users. The consortium is composed of technical experts from five European countries and involves a large community of end-users, and leads the service development over a total of 1000 km long coastline. The Space for Shore project involves the full participation of nine technical partners among Europe, which are all experts in the development of coastal or land monitoring solutions from Earth Observation (EO) data and specialists of coastal erosion issues. An additional partner is enrolled to support the market analysis and service roll-out.
The geographical location of the partners and their respective networks allows the:
application of modern techniques for coastal erosion monitoring at an European level
objective assessment of business needs
testing of the services across the breadth of coastal geomorphology found in Europe
