LIAISE summer school

 Date: June 16-20, 2014, in Leipzig

The European Environment Agency has identified 250,000 sites with contaminated soil and another 160,000 with contaminated groundwater. And with many thousands more sites as yet undiscovered, the cost of 'losing' all of this land is huge. So how should decisions to remediate, re-purpose, or neglect a contaminated site be made? This summer school will develop innovative answers to these complex issues using quantitative, crossdisciplinary tools and analysis.

Deadline for applications: March 7th, 2014
