Regional organizations join forces to develop state of the art methods for spill risk assessments


The First OpenRisk Workshop was held in the Finnish Environment Institute´s premises between 13 and 14 June 2017.

On the first day, the participants heard presentations of recent regional risk assessment projects in Europe and Northwest Pacific including end-user needs. These were followed by presentations of ongoing academic projects and new OpenRisk tools. All the presentations are available on the HELCOM meeting portal.

The second day was the actual Workshop day. It started with a round table discussion about end-user needs related to risk assessments. This was followed by more detailed group work on topics based on the earlier OpenRisk Survey. The results of the group work are available on the HELCOM meeting portal.




The upcoming OpenRisk workshops will be organized as follows:

  • The 2nd will be in Lisbon on the 12th of October 2017, hosted by the Lisbon Agreement.
  • The 3rd will be in Malta during the spring 2018, hosted by the REMPEC
  • The 4th and final will be in November 2018

Stay tuned!
