A European Commission-funded project on ‘Education and Training in Integrated Coastal Management’, that was initiated by CSI and counterparts in 1999, became fully operational in 2000; it was terminated in 2002.
An agreement to establish a UNITWIN network among five European universities to promote wise coastal practices was signed by representatives of the universities involved (University of Aveiro, Portugal; University of Bologna, Italy; University of Cadiz, Spain; University of Riga, Latvia; Russian State Hydrometeorological University, St. Petersburg, Russia) in August 2002. The launch ceremony was held at the University of Cadiz, Spain, in September 2002. A planning workshop involving the Universities of Bologna, Riga, St. Petersburg and Aveiro was held in Cervia, Italy, in November 2002; one person from Portugal attended the meeting.
