Swansea University has published its report on its multi-stakeholder workshop ‘The Future of Coastal Communities in Swansea and South Wales’.

The workshop, which was held in September 2021, was supported by the EU Horizon 2020 project ‘Grounding Responsible Research and Innovation Practices’ (GRRIP) and the HEFCW funded RWIF Collaboration Booster program.

Swansea University is one of the five Research Performing Organisations and Research Funding Organisations that is currently participating in the GRRIP Project. This workshop supported Swansea University’s aim to co-create the direction of future research and innovation with marine and maritime communities.

During this workshop participants were invited to identify challenges faced by coastal communities and the marine environment, and to suggest new relevant research activities. Attendees included participants from industry and businesses, academia, civil society, policy makers and public authorities.

The format of this workshop was based on a multi-stakeholder workshop concept created by University College Cork (UCC) for the online event ‘Shaping the Future of Marine and Maritime Communities‘.

The results of this workshop improve SU Biosciences’ understanding of stakeholder views and interests and will contribute to future events and closer connection with communities. Insights will influence the direction of the research agenda.
