One of the missions of INDICIT is to collaborate with other programs with similar thematic for mutually benefiting from the acquired knowledge and developed methods.

MEDCIS is a project with which INDICIT would collaborate regarding the second step of the MSFD implementation, especially in providing criteria and methodological standards for the Marine Litter Descriptor. Following the INDICIT presentation at the kick-off meeting of the MEDCIS project in Rome, Helen Kaberi (HCMR, Greece) presented the objectives, the structure as well as some of the first results and perspectives of INDICIT, after its first year of implementation, during the first Annual Assembly of MEDCIS, held in Athens, February 21, 2018.

On February 23, Helen Kaberi participated in a Workshop dedicated to Marine Litter and chaired by Dr Francois Galgani, where she contributed to the discussion on the criteria elements and the criteria of the Marine Litter Descriptor by presenting preliminary results of the INDICIT project not only to MEDCIS participants but also to representatives of relevant European and INTERREG projects.
