MARINEFF workshop, Sandown
November 8 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm
MARINEFF is a cross-channel EU funded project focussing on eco-engineering coastal infrastructure to increase marine biodiversity and enhance net gain. The project’s biannual workshops are aimed at a stakeholder audience of coastal managers, coastal engineers, maritime professionals, policy makers, local councils and port authorities to educate them about the project’s aims and goals and receive feedback from those in industry.
The MARINEFF project’s second biannual workshop will be held in the Education Room at Dinosaur Isle, Isle of Wight this autumn. It will introduce the MARINEFF project and all its work packages, and focus on ‘Vertipools’ in work package T2. Vertipools are a type of artificial rockpool created by Isle of Wight based subcontractor Artecology, which are retrofitted onto vertical coastal frontage, such as quays, pilings and sea walls.
