What are the impacts of micro- and nanoplastics on the human body?

We are 75 organisations from 21 countries working within five large-scale research projects united in CUSP – the European research cluster to understand the health impacts of micro- and nanoplastics (MNPs).


The CUSP cluster

Uniting five research initiatives in one large cluster will help create synergies and amplify the effort of individual research initiatives. The CUSP team will work closely with the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre to enhance the impact of their research and to make sure there is a constant dialogue between science and policymaking.
