Main Session 1 - The State of Research
For over 70 years dumped munitions have been corroding off many coasts of Europe and the world. Getting a shared perspective on the current research environment is crucial for finding a solution to the problem.

Main Session 2 - Environmental & Societal Impacts
Research shows that fish and shellfish in the direct surroundings of the munitions ingest these toxic substances, such as TNT, and thus they can enter the food chain. It is therefore crucial to figure out the impact(s) of dumped munitions on the environment, food security and coastal communities.
