9.00 Keynote talk: Food packaging, plastics and chemicals 
Bethanie Carney Almroth, Senior Lecturer, Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Gothenburg. 

Abstract: Environmental problems associated with plastics are currently on the public agenda. This is largely due to the mounting evidence of the natural capital costs associated with plastics, and the damage they are inflicting multitudes of species in diverse niches. Nearly 40% of the plastics produced in Europe are used in packaging materials, and they constitute nearly 50% of waste produced. Despite this, the chemical content of plastics used in society is rarely addressed. There are concerns that chemicals from plastic packaging might leach into food and spread in the environment. Food has to be healthy but also needs to be kept fresh and hygienic. Plastics provide seemingly perfect food packaging. Is that indeed the case? Are there risks for consumers of packaged foods? What should we be talking about here?

12.45 Concluding discussion

Egg-timer presentations
The presentations will be in a so called egg-timer format with many short presentations (about 3-5 minutes each) sequentially, with very little time between the presentations. The egg-timer format has been chosen to create an effective match-making of interests of the researchers attending the workshop, at the same time as it offers a broad introduction to the research within the CeCAR network (a network ranging from CeCAR phd-students and post-docs, researchers with funding from CeCAR, as well as researchers with joint interest in collective action research from various perspectives).
