Project objectives:
MCN is funded by the EU structural funds objective 2 northern Sweden, with the basic objective to contribute to regional development and increased employment. 
Research on various issues of contaminated land has the objective to rationalise processes and increase the understanding of risk assessment of contaminated
land. Rapid implementation of new methods and competence in specialised member companies is required in order to increase competiveness and growth. For the
period 2009-2012 the specific objective is to increase the international precense of members research groups and private companies
Project Summary:
Research in MCN is undertaken by collaborating groups from four Institutes and Universities in Northern Sweden. The research groups have varying focus areas 
which, during 2009 started on 10 new joint projects.
Achieved Objectives:
New analytical methodologies and methods for risk asessment from the previous period 2001-2007 have reached commercial application.
