ADRICOSM was a Pilot Project that aimed to implement an integrated coastal zone management system in the Adriatic Sea, consisting of a predictive circulation module and a river basin and wastewater management module. The aim was the prediction of coastal current variability in Near Real Time (NRT), and the monitoring and modeling of a river basin and wastewater system in a test site.

This Project involves directly three Nations bordering the Northern Adriatic Sea (Italy, Slovenia and Croatia) and French institutions.

This project is supported by the Italian Ministry for the Environment and Territory (Department for Global Environment, International and Regional Conventions).
