STW project. "Onderzoek naar microplastic- en nanoplastics (MNP) in Nederlands binnenwater: voorkomen MNP in Nederlandse wateren (en waterbodems), ontwikkeling van monitoring tools voor MNP, korte en lange termijn effecten van MNP op specifieke soorten, het voedselweb en de mens, en ontwikkeling van modellen over de verspreiding en risico’s van MNP.

"The current project unites 21 partners in a national program meant to develop knowledge and technologies to (a) improve risk assessment and decision support with respect to pollution by nano -  and microplastics in freshwaters, (b) produce technical tools for monitoring of NMP concentrations & NMP fate and effect modeling, (c) reduce public fear by prioritising problems and actions on a rational basis, (d) reduce risks of plastic pollution by providing the necessary tools to plastic industry, risk managers and stakeholders in the water sector."
