Pharm-ERA

Protecting our planet against pharmaceutical pollution

The contamination of global soil and aquatic ecosystems by pharmaceuticals, antimicrobial-resistant microorganisms, and pathogens is a pressing concern, threatening both our environment and human well-being. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the Pharm-ERA project brings together academics, public and private stakeholders, and EU policymakers to address this urgent issue. With 10 doctoral projects spanning scientific disciplines such as environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology, microbial ecology, molecular biology and modelling, Pharm-ERA seeks to develop innovative solutions and improve monitoring techniques and environmental risk assessment. The ultimate aim is to protect the diversity and functions of microbial life in contaminated ecosystems while ensuring the sustainability of our planet and promoting human and animal health.
