This lecture series has been organised to coincide with the exhibition 'Ocean Plastic Lab' which will be visiting Brussels at the time. The series of lectures will be delivered in English, Dutch and French, and members of the public are invited to attend, to enhance their knowledge on this increasingly urgent topic. The lectures will be provided by the German Marine Research Consortium, JPI Oceans, CSA Oceans 2 and the Royal Belgian Institute for Natural Sciences.

The Ocean Plastics Lab, an initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, will be on display from 9-19 April, and will be open to the public from 09:00-20:00 (10:00-19:00) on weekends. The event will be an educational and insightful event, regardless of attendees previous knowledge of the topic.
