Closing gaps: Techniques and solutions for reducing pharmaceutical residuals in the Baltic Sea region
This report marks the culmination of a project developed by a consortium led by the Nordic Center for Sustainable Healthcare (NCSH), including ScanBalt BioRegion, Association LithuaniaBIO, and Business Region Göteborg, in a common effort funded by the Swedish Institute.
The project was implemented in three countries (Sweden, Estonia and Lithuania), with the aim to identify practical solutions (practices, methods, techniques and technologies) throughout the value chain of pharmaceuticals to reduce the amount of residues in the Baltic Sea. This included the organisation of three workshops, desk research, as well as the implementation of interviews with relevant stakeholders.
'Closing gaps' fosters collaboration across the Baltic Sea region and suggests that effective implementation and sharing of existing practices and technical solutions can be accelerated by identifying existing gaps among the countries involved and fostering collaboration with a cross-sectoral perspective.
