Aim: to develop the research challenges that need to be addressed to tackle the issue of plastics in the terrestrial water cycle. The research challenges will later be used by UKWIR to generate calls, ideally including short (1-2 years), medium (2-3 years) and longer term (3-5 years).
- Preparatory work: providing the sector information required and including input from the water/waste supply chains. Information gathered through this process will inform the delivery of the workshop, the nature of the workshop questions discussed, and the material will later be used by UKWIR in developing the research roadmap.
- Workshop: A facilitated workshop through which to test assumptions, identify and rank research challenges.
- Workshop follow-up: develop outputs and report to UKWIR. Primarily the research challenges.
