The event will provide a first glimpse into a forthcoming policy paper developed by the JPI Oceans Knowledge Hub on the Integrated Assessment of New Pollutants. It includes recommendations to policymakers on how to include marine chemical status effectively into integrated assessments.
For the occasion, JPI Oceans is pleased to welcome as guest speaker the coordinator of the Knowledge Hub, Dr. Adam Lillicrap from the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) in Oslo. He will talk about the effects of chemical contaminants on the marine environment and how the Knowledge Hub attempts to counteract the risks. The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.
The event will take place on 18 February 2021 at 17:30 CET, as a Facebook Live session on the JPI Oceans Facebook page. No event registration is needed. Questions to our guest speaker are welcome and encouraged for the live Q&A, and can be submitted during the event in written form, in the comments tab.
