Following the success of the previous editions of the “International Conference on Microplastic Pollution in the Mediterranean Sea” – µMED – the Local Scientific Committee and International Advisory Board are pleased to invite the scientific community and stakeholders to the III edition of the µMED Conference, which will be held in Naples (NA), Italy, from 25th to 28th September at the Partenope Congress Centre.
The µMED Conference is a key event on microplastic pollution, strengthening the previous experience. The Conference will gather experts from scientific and industrial communities, policy makers and environmental organizations. It will be the occasion to update the state-of-the-art, to highlight the progresses, and to identify new and effective solutions to mitigate this environmental issue.
In order to obtain a better knowledge of the microplastic pollution problem, the main topics of the III µMED Conference have been extended, covering a wide range of multidisciplinary fields, several environmental compartments, human health, etc.
Due to the Covid situation and unpredictable sanitary restrictions, the III edition will be organised as a hybrid event including participation both in presence and online, giving participants the opportunity to present and interact face to face and from remote. However, at the moment, following the Covid directive for this type of event, it is possible to accept a maximum of 80 participants in presence. Given that there is limited availability, please only register if you are available to attend the Conference.
After the Conference the Training School “Micro and nanoplastic pollution: detection and mitigation, present and future challenges” will start. The School is organized, as a hybrid event, in the framework of the COST Action CA20101 PRIORITY – Plastics monitoring detection remediation recovery. It will be held in presence in Naples (NA), Italy, from 28th to 30th September at the Partenope Congress Centre. It will be also possible to participate on line.
