It has been 6 months since the kick-off meeting launching our exciting project, and CUSP has now laid the ground for starting its research. The first issue of the CUSP newsletter has now been published. 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 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. Be sure to also subscribe directly to any of the newsletters sent out by the individual CUSP projects that most align with your interests! Read more about communications being led by the individual projects.
