Important note

The current situation resulting from the Covid-19 has led us to rethink the best way to optimise Uhinak and guarantee that it is held in the best conditions for the congress participants. For this reason, we have designed a new format that facilitates its celebration with the maximum security guarantees and that has as main characteristic the proposal of a hybrid event, face to face for the speakers and virtual for the attendees.

Uhinak is a cross border congress about the way climate change and extreme weather phenomena affect coastal areas in the Atlantic Europe.

In this fouth edition, the climate emergency takes on special relevance since the effects of climate change and extreme events require immediate action. That is why with Uhinak 2020 we move to act in the face of the climatic emergency.


  • Become acquainted with actions and solutions that entail adopting the measures needed to defend and protect the coast to tackle the consequences of climate change.
  • Learn from experiences and best practice and collaborate in coastal management and maintenance.
  • Promote cross-border collaboration and the creation of synergies.
  • Recognise new business openings in the sector.

Who is this aimed at

  • Political and technical representatives for coastal regions and municipalities and other administrations with power in this area.
  • Experts at technology and research centres. Universities.
  • Sector businesses (environmental consulting, engineering firms, building companies…), businesses with an interest in new opportunities opening in the sector and business associations.



FICOBA has been chosen to host this event. Located in Irun, in the heart of the European city of Donostia-San Sebastián/Bayonne, its location provides the event with a cross-border dimension.


Boost to commercial relationships

We want this Conference to boost commercial opportunities for businesses and shall therefore facilitate proactive contacts between exhibitors and visitors.

Uhinak Congress is promoted by FICOBA and AZTI TECNALIA, which has the support of a scientific committee and contributors who make it possible.
