The four-day training course took place in Athens, Greece, in February 2001. Two scheduled events, the spill response demonstration and the visit to Petrola Hellas Oil Refinery took place in the Port of Piraeus and in Elefsis Gulf respectively. The general objectives of the course were the following:

  • to increase the awareness of the participants on the field of the accidental and deliberate marine pollution by oil, and particularly to the demanding capabilities needed for responding timely and effectively to emergency situations,

  • to encourage and cultivate a spirit of cooperation between the participants, and

  • to strengthen national planning and preparedness for responding to oil pollution incidents which are likely to threaten the marine and coastal environment, human health and to damage economic and cultural values.

Total Budget: € 71 427
