Coastal Regeneration Research Centre
The development of the Coastal Regeneration Research Centre is a result of rapidly expanding and innovative research activity that is supporting teaching and learning at the University of Brighton's Hastings campus. Current university research projects based here examine key issues facing Hastings and Bexhill, such as changing aspirations towards education, migration into Hastings, the role of the cultural and creative industries and sustainability in the urban regeneration process.
There are now six University of Brighton research students undertaking research in Hastings and Bexhill, and staff connected with the campus in Hastings have generated over £150,000 of funds to support research.
To work with local communities to identify research that is a local priority.
- Generate new evidence to support and guide the coastal regeneration process locally and elsewhere
- Raise the profile of the university's campus in Hastings, and the Hastings and Bexhill area, nationally and internationally
- Contribute to the development of the Hastings Helpdesk, which supports local community groups and organisations in need of research support, advice and guidance
- Raise the level and quality of research produced by staff affiliated with the University of Brighton in Hastings
