EMODnet Chemistry at the OSPAR microplastic expert group meeting: 14 January 2021

Alessandra Giorgetti, from the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS) coordinator of EMODnet Chemistry, was invited to join the OSPAR restricted meeting dedicated to microplastic held online on 14 January 2021.
The main goal of the event, organized by the OSPAR microplastic expert group (MPEG), is to discuss a proposal for a candidate indicator on micro litter in sediments. The EMODnet Chemistry database for marine microlitter was brought as a model to efficiently store open access, harmonized data at European level.
