MarinePlastic - National center for forskning i marin plastikforurening

Projekter: ProjektForskning



MarinePlastic is an interdisciplinary center for cutting-edge research into marine plastic pollution, uniting Danish researchers across institutions (four Danish universities and the National Museum) and disciplinary expertise.

The overall mission is to utilize the acquired knowledge in the consortium by ultimately proposing societal solutions and integrate decision makers. Fulfilling the goals requires that societal development form the point of departure for future research focus and that future policy measures on the other hand learn from scientific state of the art.

The research strategy for the MarinePlastic center takes this approach by having work package (WP) 1 addressing regulatory and societal change and providing input and feedback to WP 2-5, which then address the major scientific uncertainties within the areas: detection, abundance, fate and impact of marine plastic pollution.
