A study has been set up into the state of knowledge on the detection of anti-personnel mines (APM) in European key industries. The study started with an international expert workshop in order to gain a view on the state of the detection techniques from European experts as well as from representatives from European industries, and individual discussions have since taken place.

One key finding is that there will be no general technical solution useful for any region being mine infected. The environmental conditions, as well as social aspects will impact the selection of the adapted methods for the APM detection and clearance. The paper will present an overview of the findings and a proposal for a coordinated European research and development programme.
