The main objectives of the workshop were to gain knowledge of ongoing research in other countries, to facilitate a closer collaboration between the countries, and to agree on strategies for future collaboration. Topics that were discussed included environmental levels and distribution, toxicity and exposure, risk assessment and remediation of pollutants.

Rapporten er et sammendrag av "International Workshop on Munitions and Environment” som ble arrangert av FFI på Hotell Arena i Lillestrøm fra 14 til 16 mai, 2008. Det var i alt 24 deltakere fra Canada (Defence Research and Development Canada og National Scientific Research Institute), Finland (Finnish Defence Forces Technical Research Centre og The Construction Establishment of Defence Administration), Sverige (FOI), Nederland (TNO), og England (Dstl, Porton Down). Hovedmålet med workshopen var å få en oversikt over arbeid innen feltet ”ammunisjon og miljø” i andre land, å stimulere til tettere samarbeid mellom landene, og å bli enige om strategier for hvordan man bør samarbeide. Temaer som ble diskutert inkluderte nivåer av forurensninger i miljøet, toksisitet og eksponering, risikovurdering og opprydningstiltak. Av typer forurensninger ble det lagt vekt på eksplosiver, metaller og stoffer fra pyroteknikk. Arrangementkomitéen bestod av forsker Øyvind Albert Voie, forsker Tove Engen Karsrud, og prosjektleder Kjetil Sager Longva fra FFI.
