CAFE at European Maritime Days

Results of the CAFE project were presented at the European Maritime Days event that took place in Malta on 21 and 22 May. The event gathers European maritime experts and constitute an important forum for the transmission of project results.

Public lecture

At worst, an oil spill can disturb hundreds of kilometres of coastline. The current situation is alarming, and the consequences far-reaching – explanations are needed for why these accidents happen!

The free public lecture on the reasons for and consequences of oil spills is held on Tuesday 9 March from 12.30pm to 15.30pm at the Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences.
