REMPEC supports the Fourth Adriatic Oil Spill Conference (ADRIASPILLCON 2019), Opatija, Croatia, between 28 and 30 May 2019


REMPEC supported and contributed to the organisation of the 4th edition of the Adriatic Oil Spill Conference (ADRIASPILLCON 2019) held in Opatija, Croatia, between 28 and 30 May 2019, by financing the participation of representatives from the region through the International Maritime Organization’s Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme and by encouraging a dialogue on the development of a sub-regional contingency plan for the Adriatic region.

The ADRIASPILLCON 2019 focused on the level of preparedness of the region to respond to oil and chemical marine pollution, the risk and challenges of offshore activities in the Adriatic Sea and the practical, technical and scientific aspects of spill response. The Conference provided a forum where over sixty representants of national, regional and international institutions, oil, chemical and shipping industries, academic community, individual experts, specialised companies and equipment manufacturers shared their knowledge and experience, while strengthening the network in the Adriatic region.

Further details concerning the ADRIASPILLCON 2019 can be found on the Conference website.
