There is already clear evidence that chemicals associated with plastics are potentially harmful to wildlife and humans. The Seminar will focus on full environmental relevance of plastics in the transport of contaminants to organisms living in the natural environment, and the extent to which these chemicals could be transported along food chains and affect human health and wildlife and the environment.
We believe that the chance to talk frankly and openly with leading figures from the worlds of culture, media, sport and academia allows our students to develop both their confidence and their analytical skills.
Each of our speakers presents on a topic that they are world experts in before fielding questions from our students and audience. We have carefully tailor our guest lecture programme to ensure that our students listen to talks that are not only stimulating and informative, but enjoyable too. Our guest lecturers encourage debate and enhance the scholarly atmosphere of all iNNO-SCI Summer Schools summer courses.
