The project coordinator presented the GMOS-Train at the meeting “Conference of Parties (COP3) to the Minamata Convention on the 27th November at the special event dedicated to mercury Science

The COP meetings are very important events where the Contracting Parties to the Minamata Convention discuss all the issues related to the implementation of Articles of the Convention and issues arising from the different areas around the globe. The website offers latest reports of interest

One of the important conclusions from the Science session was that the global mercury science is overrepresented in the Northern hemisphere and that we need centers of science excellent more evenly distributed around the globe with the key building blocks:  Manage, Build, Train and Share.

UNEP is a Partner in the GMOS-Train and will be responsible for training ESRs on the policy dimension of the research and the Minamata Convention.

It is planned that the GMOS-Train will have a special session at COP4 in Bali, Indonesia.
