Launching event of the European Research Cluster for Understanding impacts of micro and nanoplastics on human health (CUSP)
To collect the necessary scientific evidence for assessing the risk of human exposure to micro- and nanoplastics, the EU Commission recently decided to fund 5 large research projects: AURORA , IMPTOX , PLASTICHEAL, PlasticsFatE and POLYRISK . These projects form the European Research Cluster for understanding impacts of micro- and nanoplastics on human health (CUSP).
This EU Green Week 2021 partner event will explain the purpose of the CUSP projects and discuss exposure, risks and analytical methods of micro- and nanoplastics for understanding impacts on human health.
