Brussels, 9th Session of the IHO-EU Network Working Group (IENWG)

The 9th Session of the IHO-EU Network Working Group (IENWG) was held in Brussels (Belgium) last week from 27 to 28 February. The Working Group was established by the International Hydrographic Organization under the Memorandum of Cooperation between the IHO and the European Union signed in 2012. The Working Group deals with issues of co-operation between the IHO and the EU in the field of hydrography. Primarily, it deals with issues of cooperation models with the aim of collecting hydrographical data and ensuring their availability for wider use at EU level. Croatian representatives, Vinka Kolić, CHI Director and Željko Bradarić, Assistant Director for International Cooperation, were invited to attend the meeting to present HHI's many years of experience in the successful implementation of several projects funded from European funds.

In the discussion that followed after presentations, additional explanations to queries regarding methodology and difficulties in applying and at all stages of realization of project goals or activities were provided. In this regard, the possibilities and methods of applying projects in the field of hydrography funded from EU programs and funds were pointed out. Furthermore, the representatives presented a way for other hydrographic offices to solve the disputed issues arising from the provisions of the contract which are in conflict with the national regulation, by giving a concrete example of EMODNet project, as in Croatian case. The procedure and the way CHI solved this issue has ensured the realization of the objectives of the EMODnet project.
