Baltic Sea PFAS Network

This is a knowledge sharing platform to improve the understanding of PFASs in waste streams to reduce their emissions to the Baltic Sea.

International PFAS network around Baltic Sea Regions

The purpose of the platform is to connect different stakeholders and experts from different fields. Through our exchanges, we hope to enhance each PFAS work, and to find solutions together to reduce PFAS pollution. ​

The network is open to join for anyone interested in the field, no fee required.

How do we meet?

We meet and talk! We call them Coffee Sessions with the Network. ​
This comes from Swedish tradition of “fika”. We meet casually, that is more than just coffee. Once a month, our members across the Baltic Sea and beyond meet online. Sometimes with specific topics or short presentations, and other times free talk where you bring in the agenda you want to discuss. Invitations are sent to registered members each month, and all you need to do is to join when you can.​
