New resources available under Science for Environment Policy

Submitted by Imogen Allan on 26 July 2021

Does your company work in Circular Economy or Resource Efficiency? New resources are available for you to explore under the Science for Environment Policy (SfEP)!

The SfEP is a free news and information service, aiming to help stakeholders and policy-makers stay informed with the latest environmental findings, which they can then apply to existing legislation and policies in their regions.

If your SME works in innovation and new technologies, the SfEP’s library has useful resources for you to discover! The archive lists resources such as new studies, tools and publications for you to browse and download for further information.

The library’s latest resources cover a wide variety of topics and themes relating to innovation and new technologies.

For example, researchers in a Swedish study evaluated the EU’s environmental risk assessment tool for antifouling paint used on leisure boats. Their study found that the biocide released from antifouling paints may be higher than reported, suggesting that antifouling paints should not be used to protect marine ecosystems.

Another study, focused on the threat of natural hazards, developed a machine learning model for landslide susceptibility, based upon artificial neural networks (ANNs). Overall, they found that these models can be used to accurately map regional susceptibility.

The SfEP’s library can be a great place to explore and serve inspiration for your SME or Cluster and its project. Don’t forget to follow SfEP on Twitter to keep updated on further resources or news on sustainability, Circular Economy and Resource Efficiency.
