New project: MORATOXA

On October 18, after presentation and defence over an assessment panel, our proposed project MORATOXA (Monitoring and Risk Assessment of Toxic Chemicals in the Air) was approved as a flagship scientific program dedicated to ANSO (Alliance of International Science Organizations,”一带一路”国际科学组织联盟). MORATOXA, with an initial budget of 1.3 million Yuan, is a wonderful success to our previously SCP (The Southern Contaminants) program, which was a CAS Belt & Road Initiative project closed in 2020. The partners involved in MORATOXA were selected from the SCP partners to focus more on collaborations on air toxics and health. They are:

  • University of Malaya, Malaysia (Prof. Pauzi , and Dr Bong Chui Wei)
  • University of   Dhaka, Bangladesh (Prof Habib)
  • University of Nairobi, Kenya (Prof Michael Gatari)
  • The COMOSATS University Islamabad,  Pakistan (Dr Jabir Syed)
  • Peradeniya University, Sri Lanka (Dr Karu)
  • Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (SCIR), Ghana (Dr Asante)

About ANSO: ANSO is a non-profit, non-governmental international scientific organization founded in 2018 by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and 36 other international science and education institutions from around the world. ANSO came into being under the principles of “joint consultation, joint effort and joint sharing” championed by the Chinese “Belt and Road Initiative”.

The SCP ended in 2020 with great success.

The MORATOXA, launched soon, is a natural extension of the SCP, but more selective with partners and more focus on air toxics and health.

Liu Xin and Huanfang completed their PDRA

On September 25 morning, Liu Xin (刘昕)and Huang Huanfang(黄焕芳) reported to the assessment panel (邹世春、徐 维海、彭 先芝、李军、罗春玲)on their PDRA work. This came to the completion of their service in the group and GIG.  We wish then success in their new jobs and happy new life. Congratulations!

On-site assessment of the Guangdong International Cooperation Base project

On September 24, a small group from the Guangdong Department of Science and Technology came to assess on-site our  Guangdong International Cooperation Base project entitled ‘The 21st Maritime Silk Road Centre for Environment and Health’ (the MSR-CEH, 海上 丝绸之路环境与健康国际联合 研究中心).  The group, led by Yu Kai (余凯), chatted with SKLOG colleagues, visited the AMS laboratory, and highly appraised the MSR-CEH, mostly run by our group.
