On October 7, 2021, the CUSP research cluster published the first issue of its newsletter. This issue introduces readers to the CUSP consortium and provides insights into the roles of the six collaborative working groups established to understand the best ways to share and compare scientific results across the five participating research projects. It also announces a series of new calls for scientific papers related to micro- and nanoplastics as well as the upcoming general CUSP meeting in June 2022. A more personal aspect of the CUSP newsletters is the included profiles introducing some of the many talented researchers working within the consortium’s projects. In this first issue, the newsletter gives a voice to four researchers working hard to help answer some of the challenging questions being posed by CUSP projects.
All stakeholders are invited to subscribe to the CUSP mailing list to receive the latest updates from across the research consortium directly in their inbox. You can also read more about communications being led by the individual CUSP projects.
