Workshop & Events
For more than 10 years NICOLE has carried out multiple projects and organised a series of workshops, providing a discussion platform in Europe and a sound technical basis for risk based management of contaminated land. Our network is today recognized as a leader in the European Union, and reaches everywhere in the world. Reoccurring themes in the discussions on risk-based land management, site investigation and remediation are sustainability and cost-efficiency and one of NICOLE’s primary missions is the continuous promotion for development and improvement in these fields.
