The Partnership
Background to the COREPOINT project


Funded under the INTERREG IIIB programme, Corepoint is a €4.2m project with 12 Partners from Ireland, UK, France, Netherlands and Belgium. The expertise within the project consortium will be optimised to progress the development and implementation of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) solutions across the Northwest Europe (NWE) region.

The principle goal of Corepoint is:
To Establish NWE as an Internationally Recognised Region of Excellence in Coastal Management
This goal can only be achieved by successfully utilising trans-national cooperation, and by harnessing the experience of the Project Partners in order to meet the following objectives:
• Build European and local capacity to implement ICZM programmes.
• Provide concrete solutions for current problems in the Northwest region using current best practice approaches and identify models for sustaining ICZM initiatives.
• Promote social and political responsibility for the coastal environment.
• Influence national spatial policy development in response to the EU Recommendation on ICZM.
• Develop an integrated coastal information management system for NWE.

The following activities will be undertaken to meet these objectives:
