Tailings management facilities (TMFs) store large amounts of mining waste, which can become a source of environment contamination, damaging biota and affecting human health. In Ukraine 344 officially known TMFs are potentially dangerous. To address this problem on a practical level, the project raised knowledge on TMF safety among Ukrainian students of environmental and mining sciences and developed an educational course for the inclusion in the curricula of participating universities and to the state educational programme. In addition, the project suggested a roadmap on the improvement of TMF safety management in Ukraine to fulfil the obligations under Directive 2006/21/EC.
