Bridging the gap between research and policies - End of Life boats

Activity: EventsConference


A University of Brighton Research & Knowledge Exchange Initiatives funded event, highlighting the recent research undertaken by Dr Ciocan and her collaborators on GRP (Glass reinforced plastic) contamination of the aquatic environment and the impact on biota.
This symposium seeks to capitalize on our pioneering efforts and reach out towards the Government agencies in addressing the problem of GRP boat abandonment and the need for environmentally friendly solutions. Only by integrating legal analysis into the scientific collaboration from the outset, this research can make a significant contribution to future policy pathways for mitigating GRP pollution.
