Every year in September, researchers from all over Europe are getting out of their laboratories to explain to the wide-public all the exciting things that they are doing. The idea is to popularize their work and showcase the impact it has on the lives of everyone. This year, Researchers' Night took place on 30th of September, and SEACLEAR was there to demonstrate the magnitude of the problem of marine litter, and what we do in order to solve it.
We participated in two parallel events that took place in Cluj-Napoca, home of our partners from TUCN. The weather conditions contributed to having a lot of people joining both events, and a chance for our researchers to disseminate the results of the project and it's impact on our every day lives.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 871295.
The SEACLEAR project spans four years, running from January 1st, 2020 to December 31st, 2023.
