The PISCES team brings together four UK Universities (Brunel University London, University of Leeds, University of Plymouth and University of Strathclyde) with five Indonesian Universities (Institut Teknologi Bandung, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember, Universitas Esa Unggul, Airlangga and Udayana); The Indonesia National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN), The Asian Institute of Technology, and the Indian Institute of Science with key action delivery partners. Through PISCES, these groups are working together to address the development challenge of reducing the impacts of plastic waste on Indonesian societies by providing evidence to inform and catalyse on-going intervention programmes.
