CLAIM in an interview with Agence France-Presse
The international news agency Agence France-Presse (AFP) interviewed the CLAIM coordination team about the battle against plastic pollution and how CLAIM takes part in it.
In the context of marine pollution, HCMR members share increasing numbers of microplastics found in fish and muscles in Greece. “I believe that everybody should change their habits,” project manager George Triantaphyllidis from HCMR explains. “We have to do a small revolution inside ourselves first.”
AFP showed interest in how CLAIM aims to follow this initiative. Project partners from the Hellenic Centre from Marine Research (HCMR) gave an overview of the project’s technological innovations and modelling work, as well as their direct environmental impact.
