Micro Plastics Competence Cluster

Microplastics Competence Cluster

We have collected core expertise and information about the diverse research groups at UFZ that study different aspects of plastics in the environment and bundled them in this Microplastics Competence Cluster (MPCC). The MPCC was launched in the framework of the 2023 General Assembly of the Research Program Changing Earth - Sustaining our Future and has since kept growing: it now even includes expertise from our partners at other Helmholtz Centres! Please stay tuned for upcoming additions. For any comments, please reach out to annika.jahnke@ufz.de .
