Workshop: Scientific support to Munition in the sea

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 has organized 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 focused on the following topics:

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

The workshop has been jointly organized by The National Research Council of Italy – CNR, Institute of Marine Engineering and the JPI Oceans through the support of the CSA Oceans 2 (Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program, Grant Agreement No.696324).
