Cefic-LRI Launches New Funding Opportunities for Research on Microplastics, Mixtures Exposure, and Polymers

The Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) program of the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) is now accepting grant applications for research in the following areas: 

  • How plastic fabrication impacts the breakdown of plastics into micro and nanoplastics?
  • How microplastics and nanoplastics get absorbed through the skin?
  • How polymers absorb and release in different environments?
  • Identifying the co-exposure of substances at the watershed level?

Application Deadline: 31 July 2024 

The Cefic-LRI program aims to support research addressing key issues related to the health and environmental impacts of chemicals in the industry. Proposals are welcome from both European and non-European entities, including for-profit and non-profit organizations, as well as public and private institutions such as universities, colleges, laboratories, and contract research organizations. 

Available Grant Opportunities for 2024:
