OIL SPILL - "Enhancing Oil Spill Response Capability in the Baltic Sea Region"
The project OIL SPILL intends to fill the gaps of harmonised procedures between sea, shore and land in oil spill combating by harmonising cross-border and cross-sectorial operational procedures to marine pollution and oil spill contingency plans in the Baltic Sea Region. Education and training will be harmonised through the implementation of operational marine spill studies in the curriculas of future seafarers, rescue officers, environmental specialists, etc, and by using the potential of existing BSR maritime simulator centres to carry out cross-border marine spill response trainings based on the connected simulators network.
The activities will be carried out in accordance with the principles of cooperation on pollution preparedness and response under HELCOM.
The project is funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region program and the activities will be conducted between 01.01.2019 - 30.06.2021.
