THESEUS: Innovative technologies for safer European coasts in a changing climate

The EU funded project THESEUS aims to investigate mitigation and adaptation technologies and include them in a systematic approach to assessing the impact of flood events for both human and natural environments during the current century.

The methodology is based on a Source-Pathway-Receptor analysis of flood events which can be rerun taking into account innovative coastal management techniques, socio-economic developments and climate change.  It also considers public perception of risk and the value of the natural environment beyond its role in coastal management.

Duration: December 2009 - November 2013
