CALYPSO South project meeting

CALYPSO South brings together 7 partners from Malta and Sicily. These are:

  • The Physical Oceanography Research Group within the University of Malta which is coordinating the project as lead partner;
  • Polo Territoriale Universitario della Provincia di Trapani within Università degli Studi di Palermo as the Sicilian focal point;
  • The Port and Yachting Directorate within Transport Malta;
  • CUTGANA within the Università di Catania;
  • Unità Operativa Complessa ST3 within Agenzia Regionale per la Protezione dell’Ambiente della Sicilia
  • Istituto per lo studio degli impatti Antropici e Sostenibilità in ambiente marino del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche
  • Civil Protection Department of Malta
Six meetings are planned during the implementation of the project. These will serve primarily as a forum of discussion between the partners to ensure successful implementation of the project. Other meetings include three half-day seminars open to the general public and five stake holder’s meetings to promote the cross-border exchange between responsible entities for civil protection, surveillance and security especially in connection with response to hazards from oil spills in the region, and to search and rescue operations.
