Research means the gathering of various basic information, measurements and research, contributing to the safety of seafarers and right decisions in selecting solutions in coastal construction. Basic plans and model experiments regarding improvements in ports and harbour channels will be carried out according to the work programme of the government’s transport policy. Furthermore, soundings, sea bed research and sediment movements, e.g. due to coastal wave erosion, will be carried out. The main project groups are:
Harbour and coastal research, environmental research and research relating to the safety of ships and crews.
