The fourth ocean plastics research society in Environmental and Food Unit

Marine Science Group from Environment and Food Unit will hold the fourth internal ocean plastics research society on February 14.

This Society aims to facilitate the exchange of information regarding ocean plastic research. While the primary target audience consists of researchers and students internally, individuals from outside the institution are also welcome to participate if they are introduced by a participant. We invite participation from a wide range of fields, including not only marine plastics but also areas such as plastic waste, bioplastic production, those interested in Earth sciences, approaches from polymer science and environmental toxicology, and various other fields. Of course, we also welcome those who are simply interested and would like to listen to the discussions. Please feel free to drop by and join us.
