KRING 2020 in Hamburg

Welcome to this year’s annual meeting of the KRING for Coastal Engineers, September 27 – 29, 2020 in Hamburg, Germany. This year, the meeting is hosted by the Division of Surface Waters and Flood Protection of the LSBG (Agency for Roads, Bridges and Waters). The aim of the meeting is to build a European coastal network and to share experiences on 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 might consider attendance and are cordially invited as well. This year, the KRING meeting offers three days of inspiring presentations and interesting field trips in the City of Hamburg.
