Coming Soon

Launched under the European Union’s Horizon Europe Program, EmpowerUs is a €6 million, three-year project that will empower coastal communities to transition towards more resilient, inclusive and sustainable coastal development.

EmpowerUs is led by Nordland Research Institute (NRI), Norway, and brings together 16 partner organisations from Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Spain and the UK.

The project will work with coastal communities across six regions in Europe to create a portfolio of flexible, transdisciplinary tools that support social innovation, and increase socio-economic resilience, well-being and job opportunities, ensuring that nobody is left behind.
