As part of JPI Oceans’ Facebook Live series, our latest session on 4 November welcomed Claus Böttcher, coordinator of the JPI Oceans Knowledge Hub on Munition in the Sea.

Through Facebook Live sessions, JPI Oceans aims to address important topics and showcase some of the interesting projects funded under the JPI Oceans portifolio. In 2020, featured projects included EUREC4A-OA on ocean-climate interactions, and the HOTMIC project on microplastics. In 2021, we focused on our Knowledge Hubs, including the now concluded Knowledge Hub on the Integrated Assessment of New Pollutants and the Knowledge Hub on Munition in the Sea, as well as the BlueCC project funded under the BlueBio ERA-Net Cofund.

Legacy munition dumped at sea: what is the problem and how to solve it?

On 4 November 2021, JPI Oceans hosted its latest Facebook Live session, focusing on the issue of legacy munition dumped at sea in Europe during and after recent wars. The event welcomed guest speaker Claus Böttcher, coordinator of the Knowledge Hub on Munition in the Sea, for a presentation and live Q&A with the audience.

The Knowledge Hub constitutes a multi-national expert group at the core of a dedicated JPI Oceans Joint Action on Munition in the Sea. The Action involves many EU countries, is lead by Italy, Germany and Norway, and aims to coordinate research and innovation to assess risks, define priorities and suggest intervention options concerning munitions in the marine environment.
