The SEACLEAR project will co-host a technical session on the 7th International Marine Debris Conference, organized by the United Nations Environment Programme. The session is organized in collaboration with The Ocean Cleanup, The Seacleaners, and the Innoplastic MAELSTROM project. The session is titled "Innovative Technology for searching, identifying and recovering marine debris", and will be part of the 'Technology and Innovation' track.
During the event, we will bring together initiatives addressing the challenge to intercept and remove plastic pollution from waterways and the ocean, providing a platform for exchanging ideas, experience and identifying potential complementary solutions. Details of the event are still to be defined, but it will be held in a hybrid manner with remote participation possible. Stay tuned for more details about attending the event!
