Knowledge transfer network on persistent organic pollutants - CB01065

Defra has agreed to contribute to a network of UK experts on persistent organic pollutants (POPs)which will facilitate information exchange across the research/scientific field. A particular focus of the network is to organise annual UK conferences on POPs and to organise a series of training workshops to train young scientists in key areas such as sampling, analysis and mathematical modelling. Defra funding is being provided to enable a number of young scientists to attend relevant international conferences or undertake training visits to other laboratories or institutes to learn techniques not available in their home instiutions. NERC, the Food Standards Agency and other organisations have agreed to contribute.
