As part of JPI Oceans joint action on “Munition in the sea”, CNR is organizing a workshop on 6-7 December 2018 in Rome, addressing scientific gaps and how research can bring substantial contributions for solutions and advances in knowledge.

Ammunition dumped at sea during or after wars constitutes an environmental and safety issue in many European countries. To facilitate research coordination and exchange of knowledge across European countries JPI Oceans has therefore initiated a joint action on “Munition in the sea” to facilitate research coordination and exchange of knowledge across European countries.

The workshop will feature one day of keynote speeches and four parallel sessions to debate how available scientific results or advances in knowledge can impact on solutions. The second day will be focused on an open discussion between experts and representatives of the JPI Oceans Management Board to elaborate on future steps. 

The workshop will take place at the Institute of Marine Engineering (INM), Via di Vallerano 139, 00128 Rome, Italy.
