Aquatic-polluant-swedenHow to assess the demand for knowledge?
How to inform the general public about recent research on contaminants of emerging concern (CECs)?
How to identify all relevant stakeholders to a research project on antimicrobial resistance (AMR)?

These are the kind of questions the Transnet Consortium tried to answer during its internal meeting in the Swedish Environmental Research Institute (IVL) in Stockholm last week, including partners from Dechema, ISOE, BRGM and ACTeon.

The Aquatic Pollutant Transfer project is a call launched in support of the three Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) to strengthen the European research area in the field of clean and healthy aquatic ecosystems by facilitating networking between researchers, knowledge hubs and the dissemination of scientific data into the public and administrative sectors.

Our next steps?
A classification of knowledge demand emanating from the different stakeholders and an appraisal of existing communication approaches to answer the demand (first semester 2023)
An innovation challenge for teams of researchers in the field of CECs and AMR, to reward the most creative way to transfer their research results (May 2023)
Networking with ongoing research project on their cross-cutting issues (ongoing)
