New Technologies

Research Focus & Projects

The New Technologies Department coordinates development of new measurement systems for coastal research. One focus lies in the coastal observation system (Coastal Observing System for Northern and Arctic Seas).

Several Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht departments as well as external partners from the scientific and industrial sectors are involved in COSYNA. The scientific data and products are made available free of charge via COSYNA’s data portal.

As part of the “global coast” research focus, the department collaborates with partners around the world. Research is carried out by cooperating on international research projects and through regular exchange of knowledge and expertise with international partners.

Dialogue on research results takes place with administrative bodies, politicians and the industrial sector. The public can stay informed through websites and brochures.
