Representatives of project partners and numerous representatives of public institutions and institutions responsible for safety of navigation participated in the round table.
The Round Table presented the preliminary results of hydrographic, oceanographic and biological surveys and sampling that took place during the March and April in the Dubrovnik aquatorium, aquatorium of delta Neretva (access to Ploče port, Baćinska lakes and sea), the delta of the river Bojana as well as Sutomore and Mogren beaches.
The status of maritime goods in Republic of Croatia was presented as well as the draft of the strategy for the management of the sea and coastal areas.
Furthermore, the equipment provided by EU funds has been presented, namely Valographic buoy, Side Scan Sonar, Multibeam, multiparameter probe, herbarium equipment and spectrophotometer worth more than 250.000,00 euros.
After the presentation among the participants the discussions was developed,as well as consultations and exchange of views to the problems and condition of the maritime goods in Republic of Croatia and Montenegro, and proposals were also presented in the direction of active inclusion of the target groups in the project activities as well as exchange of ideas and knowledge in related to the segment of maritime property in the cross-border area.

Students who will attend in field research were selected

Competition announcement for financing attendance of two students (1 from Montenegro and 1 from Republic of Croatia) during the research field and work on the processing of data in the partner institutions for a period of 17 days as a part of the EU/IPA project „Cross border joint research and awareness raising action in detecting environmental conditions. Establishing higher safety and protection measures of Maritime domain parts of Croatia and Montenegro“ – CoRE.
This is to inform that the Competition is officially closed. Interviews were conducted with short-listed candidates and the final selection of candidates was made.
Students who have met all requirements of the Competition and who will attend research filed and work on data processing in the partner institutions are:

Tamara Đurđevac, student of specialist studies at the Universitu of Montenegro, Faculty of Philosophy in Nikšić, Geography department (Montenegro).

Forth partner meeting was held

Forth technical and organizational meeting of the team of the project „CoRE“ was held in Tivat on 7 March 2017.
Given the importance of the upcoming research field in Montenegro and Republic of Croatia, partners were discussing about methodology of fieldwork during the survey. Details of the research were agreed, such as the involvement of divers, the number of researchers who will be on board, the equipment that will be used, methods of sampling etc. If weather conditions permit, fieldwork in Montenegro will start on 13 March and on 27 March in Croatia.
The main topic of the meeting was selection of students within the framework of activity 2.2 Student experience exchange. Competition for selection of students who will attend research in Montenegro and Republic of Croatia was published on 24 February 2017.

HHI acquires Directional wave rider buoy

Directional wave rider buoy, which value is 50.003,48 EUR, was purchased within the project, from the Italian company Lighthouse Spa.
Directional wave rider buoy will be placed near the islet Saint Andrija in Dubrovnik aquatorium with the survey vessel of HHI. Research teams of Hydrographic Institute of the Republic of Croatia and University of Dubrovnik – Institute for Marine and Coastal Research, together with cross border partners Institute of Hydrometeorology and Seismology of Montenegro and Public Enterprise for Coastal Zone Management of Montenegro will place Directional wave rider buoy during hydrographic and oceanographic research in Dubrovnik aquatorium, the aquatorium of delta Neretva, (approach to port Ploče, junction of Baćina lakes and sea), delta), the aquatorium of the delta Bojana and beach Sutomorska and Mogren.
The research will result in the establishment of "new zero" / "zero state" and safety recommendations according to collected data for delicate and changing environment of delta Neretva, (approach to port Ploče, junction of Baćina lakes and sea), delta Bojana and Sutomorska and Mogren beach and impact of the wave power on Dubrovnik city walls foundation.
After performed hydrographic and oceanographic research the new hydrographical maps will be produced (for waterway safety / habitat preservation researches) based on research and gathered date, concerning natural changes of coastline border in Croatia and Montenegro influenced by erosion from mainland and wave power from open sea.
