YPCC is an initiative started in 2011 by the Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) and is aimed towards uniting students, their teachers and directors, and a core group of international senior experts to the exchange of information on coastal processes.

"Aimed at an integrated and sustainable future, we bring together Young Professionals and Experts to share knowledge and gain new perspectives on Coastal and Marine management"

The YPCC programme 2016 concludes in Biarritz!
