Short description: The Minamata Convention (www.mercuryconvention.org) on Mercury is a global treaty to protect human health and the environment from the adverse effects of mercury. It was agreed at the fifth session of the Intergove, 19 January 2013 and adopted later that year on 10 October 2013 at a Diplomatic Conference (Conference of Plenipotentiaries), held in Kumamoto, Japan. September 2016 saw the first meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Minamata Convention. Various submissions have been made related to Article 12 - Contaminated sites. The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety in Germany (BMUB )has supported the collation of a significant amount of EU funded R&D outcomes related to mercury contamination of land held by EUGRIS (http://www.eugris.info). This has included the retrieval of information from archive sources where previously listed web pages are no longer available on line. The updated information has been summarised in a series of tables (below): • Table 1 EU supported R&D projects (22 entries) • Table 2 Outputs of the listed EU R&D projects (30 entries) • Table 3 Additional mercury contamination related EU funded R&D projects listed on CORDIS In addition we suggest these two key note resources:
