The Marineff project’s goal is to enhance and protect coastal and transitional water ecosystems in cross-border Channel regions. Today, marine infrastructures (such as dikes, quays, piers, groynes, and moorings) do not incorporate the enhancement of coastal and transitional water ecosystems.
The project aims to realise new biomimetic marine infrastructures to improve the ecological status of coastal and transitional Channel waters, as well as to involve professionals and stakeholders in the project. Improvements in the ecological status of water will be measured by an improvement of at least 15% to the initial state (before the deployment of the biomimetic infrastructure).
The Marineff project was selected under the European cross-border cooperation Programme INTERREG VA France (Channel) – England co-funded by the ERDF and involves 9 French and British partners.
