Official start of Aquatic Pollutants projects

Oct 21st, 2021

The kick-off meeting of the 18 projects funded through the joint transnational call Aquatic Pollutants, in collaboration with the three Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), was held on September 30. With 190 participants, the kick-off was a success!

The coordinators of the projects presented their planned research activities to address the risks posed to human health and the environment by pollutants and pathogens present in the water resources and fruitful exchanges took place.

The kick-off was also the opportunity to release the Aquatic Pollutants website, developed by the Transfer project TransNet, and the booklet presenting information on the specific objectives and structure of funded projects around the three themes of the call: Measuring, Evaluating, and Taking Actions.
