CUSP workshops on human health risk assessment frameworks for MNPs

CUSP-Research.eu invites you to take part in the third of our three-part series of workshops on the health risk assessment of micro- and nanoplastics

This third workshop, organized by WG5 Risk Assessment and PlasticsFatE, will have a more practical focus.

After a brief review of the results of the first and second workshops in terms of data needs, the different CUSP projects will describe the types of data needed for tools to characterize MNP risks. We will attempt to capture the specific requirements and have a structured discussion to determine if the tools are compatible with the data produced or if there are gaps.

Sometimes the data will need to be processed first before it can be used in the tools. In addition, the quality of the studies in which the data were produced also plays a role. These two topics will be addressed in the second part of the workshop. A third presentation in this session will give an introduction to possible data sources and the available data types and definitions.
