After the launch of the Action in September 2022, the first in-person Management Committee meeting happened in Valletta, Malta on 1 March 2023.

The aims of this meeting were to develop and implement an effective dissemination campaign, encourage communication and collaboration between researchers, professionals, and stakeholders responsible for water resource management in different geographic regions, promote exchange of ideas, capabilities, and experiences on the latest developments in offshore freshened groundwater research identifying current needs and future directions, involve Young Researchers and Innovators and research teams from across Europe and beyond, and encourage interdisciplinary knowledge exchange between academia, industry, policy makers and regulators.

The first Working Group (WG) Workshop happened on 2 March 2023 in the same venue. The aim of the workshop was to develop a workplan to compile a database on information on offshore freshened groundwater bodies in waters of COST Member countries, as well as available geological and geophysical data from their margins, and to generate geological models of selected margins from COST Member countries, and run hydrogeological simulations to predict the occurrence, salinity, and volume of offshore freshened groundwater.
