VEM 2004 Programme I+D+i projects

As a result of the public announcement for the research projects VEM-2004 whose scientific-technical objectives 2004 try to cover different aspects caused by the Prestige oil spill, the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science has approved 18 projects among 86 applications.

This official announcement increases the one for the previous year (VEM-2003) and both have a duration of three years.
Funds provided: 1,653,240.00€.
Here are the projects approved for funding by the Marine Oil Spill Selection Commission:
