Welcome to LOICZ

International coastal research project to open in Cork, Ireland

The city of Cork in southwest Ireland has been selected to host a major international research programme focusing on the world’s coasts.

The international project office of the Land Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone project (LOICZ) will be based at the Marei Centre of Excellence (www.marei.ie) in University College Cork (www.ucc.ie) from January 2015.

Please find the official announcement here: LOICZ_Future_Earth_Coasts_announcement_Release_18_Dec.pdf.

As a consequence of the of the transfer of the project office to Cork and the transition of LOICZ into the new Future Earth research initiative project staff is working hard on an appropriate setup of LOICZ services for the future, such as the website, and on rebranding from LOICZ to Future Earth – Coasts.

We ask all supporting partners, scientists and members of civil society interested in the project bear with us within this transition. We are looking forward to continued collaboration with you in the future of world’s coasts!
