The Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń and the Lithuanian University of Klaipeda concluded a bilateral agreement. The main focus of the partners’ cooperation will be research in analytical bio- and ecochemistry.
The collaboration concerns in particular the description of the mechanisms that xenobiotics, pathogens and nanoplastics undergo in drinking water, as well as their impact on the human brain and the development of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Informal cooperation between scientists from Toruń and the university in Klaipeda has been developing for many years. Archaeological research in Lithuania was conducted by Prof. Andrzej Kola from the Faculty of Historical Sciences. Also, Toruń was visited by doctoral students and students of the faculty of exact sciences of the University of Klaipeda. Formalizing the cooperation will allow to carry out joint research under European grants and scientific Baltic programs in many fields of science.
