The production of new plastic products since the Second World War revolutionized in a positive way all fields of human activities: medicine, aerospace, transport, health, and everyday life. However, single-use plastics account for 40 percent of the plastic produced every year. Every year, about 8 million tons of plastic waste escapes into the oceans from coastal nations. Plastic materials can have serious downsides for the environment and health.
The goal of this PhD Academy is to facilitate learning, discussion, and the exchange of ideas to address the challenging issues in Plastic Pollution and how science is working to solve this problem.

Suitable for: PhD students, post-docs, and young researchers in Natural sciences & Technology, or any other discipline related to Material Science.
