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.

The CUSP Cluster is calling for abstracts for a proposed session at SETAC 2024, to be held in Seville from 5 – 9 May 2024; the session, named ‘The Fate and Effects of Micro- and Nano-plastics in Relation to Human Health Exposure’, will present the latest developments in analytical techniques and biological assays and models and associated results that advance our understanding of human exposure to MNPs and their fate and effects.
