Memorial Deadline: Tuesday 17th, March 2020
External Deadline: Friday 20th, March 2020
The Increasing Knowledge on Plastic Pollution (IKPP) Initiative is a program that aims to address knowledge gaps related to the potential human health effects and ecotoxicology of plastics in Canada. The IKPP is implemented by Environment and Climate Change Canada, in collaboration with Health Canada, It aims to increase capacity, leverage collaborative partnerships and generate knowledge in support of Canada’s Plastics Science Agenda (CaPSA) with a particular focus on research gaps identified in the Draft Science Assessment of Plastic Pollution.
Start date: January 30, 2020
End date: March 20, 2020
To support the implementation of Canada’s Plastics Science Agenda (CaPSA) and address the research gaps identified in the Draft Science Assessment of Plastic Pollution, projects funded by this initiative must seek to expand understanding of the effects of plastic pollution on human health and the environment. Scientific research funded by this initiative must contribute to improving the information base for assessing the risks of plastic pollution.
