This paper presents a timely review of European coastal research as brought together in the ELOISE programme, at the end of its third phase of funding. The programme is intended to be the response of the EC to the challenge highlighted by the Land-Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone research project (LOICZ). Following a review of policy issues in the European coastal zones, and EU initiatives to address them, we assess the actual and potential contributions of research project findings to ELOISE objectives, and to the implementation of EU policy legislation affecting the coast. We identify several discrepancies between the project outputs of the ELOISE programme and the information needs arising from the implementation of the relevant directives. We suggest underlying causes for these discrepancies, and propose new research priorities to mitigate the information gap problem.
