Eurocoast UK has the aim of providing a network for exchange of scientific and technical ideas relating to the coastal zone. In order to achieve this, the organisation produces a newsletter and is aware of conferences and workshops throughout Europe. Between 6th-13th September 1992 the Internal Coastal Congress (ICC) was held at Kiel, Germany. This congress was multi-disciplinary and aimed to create cross-fertilisation between different scientific groups and countries. The following report outlines areas of particular interest from presentations the author witnessed. Coastal Management is a common topic throughout Europe and many of the problems faced are similar from country to country. We can benefit from the experiences of other countries and contribute to the evolution of Coastal Management on an European scale. Understanding coastal processes and how to monitor was a common conference theme. The importance of crossing the divide between science and management was realised at the conference and exchange of ideas from theoretical to practical began to be achieved.
