The HNS-MS project, Harmful and Noxious Sustances pollution of the Marine System, is funded by the European Commission’s DG ECHO and is ending on 31 December 2016. In Brussels on 13-14 December, the project is holding its final stakeholder meeting to present the project’s results including, among others, a decision-support tool for national maritime authorities and coastguard stations to forecast the drift, fate and behaviour of acute marine pollution by Harmful Noxious Substances (HNS) accidentally released in the marine system.
The meeting is designed to allow open discussions among participants and foster possible future collaborations and actions (e.g. long-term maintenance of the HNS-MS DSS, capacity-building in other regions, regional risk assessments, etc).
Further information is available on the project’s website
