Third issue of CUSP newsletter published

Issue number three of the periodic CUSP News is now available for download; includes updates about the latest events, initiatives, and achievements aross the cluster's projects over the past few months

The CUSP research cluster is now in its second year, and the five member projects (AURORA, IMPTOX, PLASTICHEAL, PlasticsFatE, and POLYRISK) have over the past few months developed dynamic and close collaborations including regular meetings in well-established working-groups.

The latest third issue of CUSP News features an article about the publication of the first CUSP policy brief (CUSP reported) that raises awareness about the many European policy initiatives that can potentially be informed by CUSP findings, including the EU’s Bioeconomy Strategy, the REACH restrictions on intentionally added MNPs, and the Drinking Water Directive.

Furthermore, the issue includes an overview of the latest achievements across the six CUSP working groups, including discussions on in vivo and human biomonitoring studies. In the section “News & Updates from CUSP and Our Projects”, you can read about the last CUSP annual meeting in Ispra (Italy) and find out what each of the five projects has been up to over the past months. Don’t miss the section on CUSP collaborations to learn about the widening network of joint efforts underway to better understand the potential impact of MNPs on human health.

In the “Announcements” section, you will find current calls for papers and Ph.D. scholarships. And last, but certainly not least, the latest issue introduces some of CUSP’s researchers and lets you hear from them about what motivates their daily work, the challenges they face, and what got them into science in the first place!
