I coordinate the MicroCatch_Balt project. The focus is on the effective cooperation with other microplastic projects such as BONUS MICROPOLL and PLASTRAT, as well as the consultation with partner projects at other institutes such as PLAWES. The aim of all the projects is to provide a comprehensive picture of sinks and sources of microplastics in water bodies. The synergistic cooperation achieves more than is possible for each project alone.
