In Granada, Spain, the 26th of February 2015 has took place the 2nd Interproject Workshop Meeting of the OCEAN2013 projects at the same time of the 2015 ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting (22-27 February 2015. Granada, Spain).


In order to monitor marine waters for the continuously growing list of emerging chemical and biological pollutants, new effective methods for easier and accurate sensing are needed. The workshop brought together 19 representatives of 7 active FP7-OCEAN-2013 projects from the fields of Biosensors and Innovative, Multifunctional sensors:

  • Topic 1: Biosensors for real time monitoring of biohazard and man-made chemical contaminants in the marine environment  (projects: ENVIGUARD,  MARIABOX, SMS)
  • Topic 2: Innovative multifunctional sensors for in-situ monitoring of marine environment and related maritime activities.  (projects: COMMON SENSE, NEXOS, SCHEMA, SENSE OCEAN)

EnviGuard consortium was represented by Mr. Alejandro Caballero (BIOAZUL SL) and Ms. Johanna Hessel (AWI - Alfred Wegener Institute); on the other hand, the European Commission was also represented by Ms Izabela Freytag who gave a short presentation on GEO. Izabela Freytag, Project Officer of the EC was very proud to see the collaboration among these sensor projects. She highlighted the importance of interoperability.

The participants were actively involved through presentations and discussions based on the high level topics and areas as well as potential collaboration areas as agreed during the 1st workshop that took place in Barcelona the 16th November, 2014.

Several relevant issues were addressed during the workshop discussions: common standards, sensor protocols, regulatory issues, pollutants monitoring, etc. At the end of the meeting discussion, participants agreed on a road map to continue the work consisting in 9 specific actions including a leader responsible for communication and coordination future work and a preliminary working schedule for first activities.
