A ship in harbour is safe.
But that is not what ships are built for.
A bottom-up initiative
ASE launched in the year 2018 a citizen science initiative called ERASMUS MARIS
which aims to provide a framework for the design and run of EU-wide scientific studies co-created by teachers of upper secondary schools (age 15+) within the scope of preserving the marine environment.
The Erasmus Maris is supported through a collaboration agreement with the
European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC).
One of the objectives is to implement quality control procedures to ensure valid and useful outcomes for the scientific community when monitoring microplastics pollution in aquatic environments.
