Science Workshops

INTERSPILL 2022 will once again feature science workshops jointly organised by Cedre and ITOPF.

These will cover key topical issues relating to both present and future challenges in spill and pollution response. These workshops take the form of four 1-hour sessions, each comprising three presentations by specialists followed by 30 minutes of discussions with the audience to explore these issues in depth.

The speakers will be from both academia and industry in order to offer as broad a perspective as possible and an international viewpoint.

The discussion sessions will be an opportunity for you to express your point of view and contribute to the debates, gain insight into the latest advances on topics presented by experts and potentially expand your network.
