A database with the latest information on SARS-CoV-2 in sewage across Europe and internationally; including a common protocol for sample collection, storage, extraction, analysis and data sharing to support the development of an international comparable data set.
A database of data obtained by analysis of environmental samples with bioassayss
These databases are being developed and integrated with the primary aims of:
Bringing together existing knowledge on emerging substances and,
Setting up a framework for the systematic collection, elaboration and scientifically sound evaluation of future data.
NORMAN has an ambition to become the primary data source and global one-stop-shop for all issues regarding emerging substances, contributing to the creation of the early-warning system for emerging pollutants and subsequent policy actions.
The NORMAN Association has a long-term interest in being granted access to data on emerging substances from various research projects and in exploring other areas of possible data sharing in line with the NORMAN Position Paper: Collection, exchange and interpretation of data on emerging substances - Towards a harmonised approach for collection and interpretation of data on emerging substances in support of European environmental policies.
