Welcome to one of the latest collaborative research projects involving the Marine and Freshwater Research Centre (MFRC), GMIT, the University College Dublin (UCD) and Carey Building Contractors. This multidisciplinary study will be delivered by a team of biologists, limnologists, environmental engineers and industrial partners. The project aims to inform the development and implementation of  policy through  improved understanding of microplastic sources, pathways and environmental fate in Irish freshwater systems.

The project recognises the importance of ensuring that the knowledge generated by our research projects are communicated effectively on a continuous basis to relevant audiences for the duration of this project and beyond.

Information will be added on a regular basis to ensure you the reader will be kept up to date on the latest advances within the project and on relevant information surrounding the topic. Check out our Blog so you can interact with us –  whether it is to answer any questions or comments you have on the subject or to share information with us.  We look forward to engaging with you…
