KRING 2018

Welcome to this year’s annual meeting with the KRING of Coastal Engineers, September 23 – 25, 2018 in Ystad, Sweden. This year the meeting is hosted by the coastal section of the Swedish Association for Water (Föreningen Vatten) in cooperation with Lund University. The aim of the meeting is to build a European coastal network and share experiences about coastal management and protection. The target groups for the meeting are coastal managers, coastal engineers and researchers, but politicians, planners, geologists, and others with an interest in coastal issues are warmly welcomed. This year the KRING meeting offers three days of inspiring presentations, workshops, and field visits along the south coast of Sweden.
