EEA and Norway grant fund for bilateral relations strategic initiative application “The spread and dynamics of microplastic pollution in Latvian and Icelandic sea and lake waters – a new cooperation direction launch” receives grant in the amount of 51 893 EUR from Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway in the frameworks of EEA and Norway grant.

Initiative partner in Iceland is the University of Iceland – largest, most prestigious and leading university in Iceland, especially in the field of marine and freshwater research in earth and environmental science faculties. Currently it is the only research institution in Iceland that conducts research on the prevalence of microplastics in marine and lake waters and sediments.

Pharmaceuticals (CWPharma2)

Residues of active pharmaceutical ingredients from wastewater contaminate the water and of the Baltic Sea.

In CWPharma 2, partners from 7 countries work on removing active pharmaceutical ingredients (Pharmaceuticals/API) from the main input route, i.e., wastewater by verifying the effectiveness of the CWPharma guidelines especially on removal of APIs (3.4) from wastewater to decrease the input into the Baltic Sea.

Project “Estimation, monitoring and reduction of plastic pollutants in Latvian-Lithuanian coastal area via innovative tools and awareness raising”
(LLI – 525)
Acronyme: ESMIC
Project aims to develop a sustainable, cost-effective framework for plastic litter detection, monitoring and management in marine and coastal environments. Plastic litter is linked with negative economic, social and ecological consequences and common challenges related to plastic litter are complex: increasing amounts of microplastic, direct harm to the marine biodiversity and negative impacts on recreational activities.
