A socio-ecological assessment for MP to address the needs of future Circular Plastics Economy in Europe
At Univie, ESR6 will work on the identification of behavior intervention points that mitigate amount of microplastics loss to environment.
The objective of ESR6 will be to develop robust proposals on how to assess and to evaluate social-ecological impacts of MP, including the analysis of sources, impacts, and interventions addressing MP from sources to sinks. In relation to policy, ESR6 will give attention to how the European Commission’s Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) and Plastics Strategy can be operationalised to address MP but will also consider wider actions and stakeholders providing an explicit interface between science, policy, and the private sector. Attention will be given to the full life cycle of plastic products and associated sectors.
