Acronym:
Effect-Net
Title:
A multi-scale effect network for hazard identification and risk evalua-tion of high consumption chemicals in aquatic ecosystems Drugs, pharmaceuticals and food additives ‒ from receptors to biodiversity
Duration:
01/09/2015 to 31/08/2020
Abstract / short description:
With a focus on two groups of emerging micropollutants in aquatic environments, food additives and pharmaceuticals, the project Eff-Net crosses the borders between (natural and socio-political) science and public interest by providing an analytical network which gives insight into the cross-linking of consumer behavior and ecological impact. As a multi- and transdisciplinary project, it crosses disciplinary and social boundaries and generates a toolbox (1) for multi-scale chemical effects as a basis for a holistic effect-based risk evaluation, and (2) for sociocultural governance aiming at personal and political responsibility as well as a reduction of emissions of hazardous chemicals into aquatic environments.
