Date
14/12/2020 - 15/12/2020


SHAREMED is an Interreg MED Strategic Project led by OGS – Italian National Institute of Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics, born from the specific request of the Med Secretariat, and with the specific goal to define and test the implementation of a transnational and multi-level system of observing systems, able to assess and address environmental threats in the Mediterranean Sea and along its coasts.

The project answers the need identified in the framework of the Interreg Med gap analysis, and targets both the scientific and the governance components required in the definition and testing of the systems.

ShareMED is intended to support regional, sub-regional and local authorities, and the research community to jointly assess and address hazards related to the increasing presence of pollutants and coexisting environmental threats in the Mediterranean Sea. The project will be proposing a design of the future Mediterranean marine observatories and monitoring systems for assessing environmental risks as a co-ordinated and trans-national effort.

In collaboration with the University of Malta (Physical Oceanography Research Group), a first project capitalisation workshop is being organised on 14th and 15th December 2020. The details on the scope and plan of the workshop are provided in the attached info sheet.

This workshop is bringing together leading experts and representatives of major international projects and initiatives in the field of environmental threats and observation systems in the Mediterranean, in order to share expertise towards the design of transnational and multi-level system of observing systems, able to assess and address environmental threats in the Mediterranean Sea and along its coasts.

We would like to invite you to mark your calendars and register here. Look forward to seeing you, even if virtually, at the workshop and to share the expert discussions with you. Thank you ahead for dedicating your time to make this event impactful.
