Outputs and reports
FanpLESStic-sea aims to increase knowledge, evaluate technologies and increase commitment of decision makers regarding methods to reduce microplastics.
This page contains reports and other documented deliveries from the project. If you are interested in other activities performed during the project period, such as exhibitions, youth activities, study visits, the FanpLESStic-sea board game and much more, please visit the Project activities page.
The final conference was held online on November 30th, 2021. See the recording on youtube here.
Presentations and information about the conference have been made available here.
