Meetings with Stakeholders

The OceanWise team is organizing meetings with Stakeholders. The 2nd round of participatory sessions kicked in early in 2020, in Lisbon, Brest and Vigo. We are looking forward to the online participatory sessions to take place before the Summer in the UK and Ireland.
The 1st round of sessions took place in 2019 in Lisbon, Vigo, London, Dublin, and Lorient.
We will be publishing the results of this dialogue with the Industry and others very relevant Stakeholders on this page .

  • OceanWise deals with marine litter in a circular economy perspective. It is focused exclusively on foamed polystyrene plastic (i.e. EPS and XPS ) products and applications with a likelihood to become marine litter. OceanWise wants to approach this issue with a wide-view angle, by putting together a multi-sectoral platform to include Governmental bodies responsible for marine environment management, Industry and other stakeholders, waste management authorities, designers, circular economy modellers, I&D specialists in participatory processes, and end-users. EPS is short for expanded polystyrene, commonly known as plastic foam or styrofoam. XPS is another type of expanded polystyrene material.
