REST-COAST receives the Polish Smart Development award

5 July 2024

Last year REST-COAST was nominated for the Polish Reward of Intelligent Development in the category of The Project for Future. This competition is run by the Polish Intelligent Development Forum Foundation, which aims to integrate science and policy in Poland by bringing together researchers, universities, the business sector, and local and provincial authorities.

And while a nomination does not guarantee a win, REST-COAST did outrun the competition and was presented with a winning award. Grzegorz Różyński of the Institute of Hydro-Engineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IBW PAN) gave a talk about the project and its goals earlier this year and was awarded with the Smart Development Leader prize.

The REST-COAST team hopes that this acknowledgement will increase the visibility of the project among readers, such as the local authorities of Polish coastal regions, and may even lead to up-scaling of project results.
