Ecostructure is a collaborative project between five leading research-intensive universities in Wales and Ireland, Aberystwyth University (Project Lead), Bangor University, Swansea University, University College Cork and University College Dublin. Ecostructure is an interdisciplinary project which aims to raise awareness of, and provide guidance to developers and regulators on, the potential for ecologically sensitive engineering (eco-engineering) solutions for coastal infrastructure.

Ecostructure would like to recognise all the key partners:
