Welcome to the Coastal Research Centre (FZK)

As a joint institution of Leibniz University Hannover and Technische Universität Braunschweig, the Coastal Research Centre (FZK) stands for first-class research in the field of coastal engineering and maritime technologies. This is made possible not at least by the globally outstanding equipment for carrying out physical model tests with waves and currents, above all the Large Wave Flume (GWK). Learn more about FZK and our competence. Get in touch with us and let us research together for science or practice.
