In #microplastinar_12, we are welcoming Prof. Dr. Andreas Suchanek. He will discuss the subject: “Microplastics – What is the Responsibility of Chemical Corporations?”.
The #microplastinar webinar series is co-organized by HHL within the LimnoPlast Project.
The EU-founded research project “LimnoPlast – Microplastics in Europe’s freshwater ecosystems: From sources to solutions” tries to meet the new environmental challenge of microplastic pollution by putting together an international research network consisting of environmental, technical, and social scientists. HHL is one of the few European universities working at this research project, thanks to the team composed by Prof. Dr. Liv Jaeckel, (Chair of Law of Economic Regulation), Prof. Dr. Tobias Dauth (Chair of International Management) and Giorgia Carratta (research associate and PhD student). The ultimate scope of HHL’s contribution to the project is to identify potential regulatory gaps, design new legal tools, and promote innovative governance strategies to address the emerging issue of microplastics.
