Ammunition dumped at sea during or after wars constitutes an environmental and safety issue in many European countries. JPI Oceans has initiated a joint action - involving 12 participating countries and is led by Italy - on Munition in the Sea to facilitate research coordination and exchange of knowledge across European countries. As part of this initiative, CNR is organizing a workshop in Rome, December 6-7, 2018, addressing key aspects where scientific gaps are identified and research can bring substantial contributions for solutions and/or advances in knowledge. Specifically, the event will focus on the following topics:

  • Knowledge-based support to decisions
  • Large scale identification of objects
  • Chemicals sensing and remediation
  • Cost efficient explosions’ remediation

Registration is possible until September 15. For more information, please visit the workshop websites.
