The RIOS Project

The Reducing the Impact of Oil Spills (RIOS project), which is funded by DG Research and started in April 2007, is in its final stage of completion. The main objective of the project is the development of an action plan for future research in the area of rehabilitation of oiled animals.To this end, an international workshop was organised in Algarve, Portugal on 17-19 April 2008 with the objective of gathering stakeholders to discuss research needs regarding marine oil pollution and to contribute to the identification of the research priorities. Organised by Nordeconsult, Zoomarine and Sea Alarm, the workshop was attended by over 45 participants from across Europe and North America.
Following on from the RIOS workshop, Sea Alarm led the development of the European Action Plan which was submitted to the Commission in October.
