In brief, the actions included in MARINER project consist of:

• Compiling available information and knowledge relevant for HNS response to make them widely accessible through a friendly web based tool. Selected materials will be translated into operational products to facilitate their use by responders. • Improving the applicability and accessibility of modelling tools and methodologies for risk and impact assessment.• Adapting protocols and equipment for oil spill response and land-based events and defining good practice and lessons learnt through liaison with key experts from industry, civil defence and emergency responders. • Improving training and exercises by developing innovative processes, tools, materials and activities to aid the development of bespoke exercise scenarios and training packages.• Carrying out a target transfer of key outcomes to selected audiences.
