“Unlocking our potential for coastal innovation growth”

Co-ReSyF is a strategic initiative funded by the European Commission, aiming to support the development of coastal research through satellite data. This will be achieved by creating an online platform to support research applications that use Earth Observation (EO) data for coastal water monitoring, The platform will:

  • enhance our research to formulate an improved understanding of requirements.
  • incorporate EO data use into multi-disciplinary research activities by simplifying the process, and
    train the coastal scientists of tomorrow with a dedicated summer school.

Co-ReSyF partners are working closely with members of the maritime and space research communities to analyse coastal water research needs, develop cutting-edge technology that is key to enhancing EO data usage and processing, and support our maritime economy by enabling knowledge generation. The multi-disciplinary pan-European team is committed to:

  • Creating an online platform to support research applications that use Eo data for Coastal Waster monitoring,
  • Developing a framework that simplifies the incorporation of EO data use into multi-disciplinary research activities.
  • Integrating access to over 20 ears of EO satellite data, current and future Sentinel missions, ranging from radar to optical and thermal.
  • Providing a user-friendly platform, accessible to inexperienced researchers as well as EO and coastal experts.
