Do you want to learn more about plastic contamination in soil? We encourage you to check the following projects:

 

Papillons logo

PAPILLONS is the sister project of MINAGRIS. 20 universities and research institutions from 12 countries will jointly investigate the sustainability of plastic use in European agriculture. The focus is on the input of plastic particles and chemical additives into arable land, and their possible ecological and socio-economic effects.

SOPLAS

SOPLAS is a multi-disciplinary and intersectoral innovative training network of the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions). SOPLAS covers 14 interlinked PhD projects to train the future generation of experts in the plastic, soil and agriculture nexus.

PLASTIC.SOUP logo

The Plastic Soup Foundation was founded in February 2011 with the goal to make everyone familiar with the phenomenon of plastic soup and to stop it at its source.
 

PLASTIC.SOUP logo

The International Knowledge Hub Against Plastic Pollution is a multidisciplinary community of scientists & experts working to address global plastic pollution. IKHAPP is an open platform that will give a cohesive authoritative voice to researchers and experts working for solutions to plastic pollution.on.

BIOMAC aims to establish an Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB) Ecosystem capable of upscaling the market
-readiness and production of Nanostructured bio-based materials (NBM).

  • Task 8.1 Development of a project website, visual identity and intranet portal for information

    Task leader: WU | Participant(s): UoG, EQY | Timing: M1-M6

    We will establish a project website to a) communicate information about the project aims and news (newsworthy facts and a bi-annual newsletter) b) to act as a platform for disseminating information developed within the project, deliverables and other outputs. It will be designed to suit all relevant audiences including researchers, policy makers, stakeholders and general public. We will also set up and maintain a secure intranet section which will be accessible only by the partners and restricted users. This will facilitate protected dissemination of information (e.g., scientific data, announcements and registration for meetings and workshops, management plan, meeting agendas/minutes, tools for writing and/or downloading project reports, training materials).
