UNICA (University of Cagliari) organized a conference the 20 June 2019 in Cagliari, entitled “New approaches for the quality assessment of the marine environment in the context of European Directives”. The aim of this event was to present the objectives and first results of MONITOOL to a broad audience, composed of stakeholders, harbour authorities, university professors from different disciplines and experts in the marine environment. UNICA is the only Partner of MONITOOL located outside the Atlantic Region, so, it was the perfect occasion to outreach relevant target groups in the Mediterranean.


Apart from the presentations provided by the colleagues from UNICA, that is Marco Schintu, Alexandre Bettoschi and Natalia Montero, the event benefited from the participation of two people from AZTI, María Jesús Belzunce-Segarra and Iratxe Mentchaca, as Partners of the MONITOOL project. Briefly, MONITOOL was presented to the audience, highlighting the limitations of current monitoring programs and the potentiality of DGTs to comply with the requirements of European Directives. Besides, the preliminary results obtained in the project were presented.

By means of this event it was possible to extend the impact of MONITOOL project. The potential use of DGTs for complying with regulatory monitoring, as regard the assessment of the chemical status, attracted the attention of the public and generated interesting debates. Besides, the presence of experts from different disciplines enriched the final discussion of the event.
