Race for Water was glad to participate to the EPHEMARE Stakeholder Workshop last week!
This workshop was hosted by the University of Antwerp in order to facilitate a productive knowledge exchange between participants included on the JPI Oceans EPHEMARE project with various profile (scientists, regulators, policy and decision makers and industrials) to discuss on potential solutions that can address adverse impacts of micro-plastic pollution in our seas.
The main objectives of this workshop were the following:
to highlight current research findings within the context of the existing and emerging EU regulatory, policy and legal landscape,
to identify future research questions, considering policy, legal, regulatory and industry needs and
to work together on effective and implementable solutions that can address adverse impacts of micro-plastics on marine life and reduce potential risk to human health.
You will find attached the agenda of this workshop and some documents with further information on the JPI Oceans EPHEMARE project current research findings.
