Initial Data Management Plan

Related to task 8.2: Initial Data Management Plan

Online blog as platform for consistent public dissemination

Related to task 8.1: An online blog as platform for consistent public dissemination. After setting up the blog, frequent posts (English, minimum four per month) will report about the project’s progress and news from the global plastic crisis to set the consortium’s work in a comprehensive context. The blog will be linked to the social media channels of the consortium members to maximize the communication and impact (PGS).
