The ML-REPAIR project ran for two years starting in 2017 and ending in September 2019.
The project saw MARE participate as a partner together with other Italian and Croatian institutions.
The theme dealt with was that of the Marine Litter and its management once collected by fishing boats.
During the project some vessels were involved in waste collection in various Italian and Croatian ports. Furthermore, a marine litter collection and disposal chain has been set up in these ports which envisages the placement of some bins in the ports and the agreement with some companies for the collection of the marine litter placed in the latter.
The project has also organized many dissemination initiatives, exhibitions on marine litter, courses in middle and primary schools on the subject of marine pollution, the creation of videos and social content to raise public awareness.
