Circular Plastics Network for Training

Project description

New crop of plastic researchers for Europe

Bringing plastics into the circular economy is one of the great challenges of our age. The EU-funded C-PlaNeT is laying the foundation for a new plastics economy by training 15 early stage researchers to become a new generation of scientists. The project will train these researchers to focus on complementary skills such as entrepreneurship and the translation of research into policy. The researchers have a background in chemistry, social sciences, engineering, political sciences, product design and business model development. These researchers will be involved in international research and will be active in the plastics industry where they will also raise awareness through public outreach.
