PREVENTING OIL AND PLASTICS CONTAMINATION OF OCEAN REGIONS OF THE NORTH (POPCORN)

POPCORN  is a clustering project of the NPA programme, which brings together either ongoing or already completed NPA (APP4SEA, Circular Ocean & Blue Circular Economy) and Baltic Sea Region projects (OIL SPILL), which address maritime pollution issues. Each of the project focuses either on oil spills or plastic pollution and has supported authorities, organisations and other actors working with these challenges in the Northern waters. POPCORN takes these outcomes and best practices of the individual projects and shares them with the new regions and organisations, in NPA region and beyond.
