The last few months have been a busy time for the TAPAS project with several key meetings.
In October, Trevor Telfer and Lynne Falconer attended a WP3 workshop in Wageningen, The Netherlands, about Environmental Risk Assessment models. The workshop was organised by WP3 leaders, Wageningen Environmental Research (Alterra) to discuss and evaluate existing models for the environmental risk assessment of chemicals used in European aquaculture and to design a strategy for their development and improvement. Decisions were also made regarding thecase studies that will be used for WP3.

On the first day, WP leaders discussed progress to date, objectives and work that was planned for each WP. On the second day, Case Study leaders presented and discussed the case studies that will be used in TAPAS.
