Through SETNet (SPICOSA Education and Training Network) SPICOSA established a platform for disseminating information, knowledge and experiences about systems approaches, specifically for ICZM students and coastal professionals in Europe.
SPICOSA´s central objective of developing the Systems Approach Framework (SAF) centres on methodologies for simulating the function of coastal zone systems. The simulation software EXTEND applied at SPICOSA Study Sites makes it possible to show how complex Coastal Zone systems react in the Study Sites. The Model Support Team of SPICOSA regularly produces a Special EXTEND Newsletter with information about developments of EXTEND applications, examples, and progress.
