Previously, there had been little transnational collaboration on the issue of munitions in the sea. Now, though, our project is helping to overcome boundaries – both between the disciplines involved and between different North Sea states.

The European Union (EU) provides funding for our research as part of its INTERREG programme supporting specific European regions. One
of the beneficiaries of INTERREG is the North Sea region, where the programme aims to promote transnational research and conservation.
Organising such a transnational and transdisciplinary research project is a challenge, especially in the midst of a global pandemic.
Nonetheless, North Sea Wrecks illustrates how various different actors can collaborate successfully to tackle a common problem. North Sea Wrecks builds upon the work of other transnational research partnerships, such as the Baltic region’s CHEMSEA and DAIMON projects.
