Foreshore Assessment using Space Technology (FAST, 2014 - 2018) is a project funded by the European Union's (EU) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement number 607131.

FAST is developing down-stream services for the European Earth Observation Programme Copernicus to support cost-effective, nature-based shoreline protection against flooding and erosion.

Demonstration services are planned for 2017, if you are as excited as us about the FAST project and would like to hear more about the smart service that will allow you to easily include ecosystem engineering concepts into coastal protection follow us @FP7FAST or on facebook
