The first newsletter of the FP7 research project "EU Action to Fight Environmental Crime (EFFACE)" has been published and is available online. The electronic newsletter is open for subscription by all interested persons and will be published every three months. The newsletter features, inter alia, a presentation of the EFFACE project and its Advisory Board. Information on upcoming relevant events also is included. Future editions will provide a similar mix of news and insights from the EFFACE project and relevant developments on environmental crime outside of EFFACE.
The interdiscplinary research project "European Union Action to Fight Environmental Crime" (EFFACE) assesses the impacts of environmental crime as well as effective and feasible policy options for combatting it, with a focus on the EU. The project is funded under the 7th Research Framework Programme of the EU (FP7). Ecologic coordinates the work of 11 European universities and think tanks involved in the project. The newsletter is compiled by the EFFACE partner Institute for Environmental Security.
Subscription to the newsletter is possible at the EFFACE website; the first newsletter is also available there.
