Project objectives:
PROMOTE will acquire the potential to act as one of the initiators for a European Environmental Technology Veri­fication System, overcoming implementation 
barriers and bridging the gap between innovative and accepted techni­que PROMOTE will address these challanges by: Elaborating a generic environ­mental technology verification (ETV) system designed to be basically appli­cable to a broad range of environmental tech­nologies.
Adapting the ETV system to monito­ring approaches and remediation tech­nologies in soil-groundwater systems. Verifying the ETV system at refe­rence site and in field site scale. ETV system transfer to related environmental technologies in cooperation with the related EU projects EURODEMO (http://www.eurodemo.info) and Testnet (http://www.est-testnet.net).
Setting–up of a “CEN Workshop” pro­cedure to come to a common under­standing of verification requirements.
Project Summary:
The overall aim of PROMOTE is to set up an efficiency control and performance verification (ECV) system for soil-groundwater protection and rehabilitation 
based on a more generic testing and performance verification concept, in a network of testing centres. This is in direct accordance with the ETAP procedure.
A strong impact of PROMOTE is to be expected concerning a faster market introduction of novel techniques hence strengthening the competitiveness of technology
developers in Europe. This guaranteed by an extensive integration of SME�s and Eastern European partners. PROMOTE will gain the potential to act as
a germ cell of a pre-normative verification system, overcoming implementation barriers and bridging the gap between innovative and standardised techniques.
Main scientific-technical objectives are:-Assessment of existing verification tools and identification of demands on techniques to support the implementation
of the WFD, the GWD and the evolving Soil Protection Strategy-Elaboration of a generic testing and performance verification concept designed to be basically
applicable to abroad range of environmental technologies-ECV system development for remediation and monitoring approaches in soil-groundwater systems-ECV
system verification on a reference and a field site-ECV system transfer to related environmental technologies-Establishing a ECV platform by including
the 'CEN Workshop' tool beyond the projectThe ECV system set-up is divided in four phases: (1) Organisational phase, (2) Operational phase, (3)Assessment and verification phase and (4) ECV establishment and dissemination strategy, comprises a conceptual review and testing of the ECV applicability, the ECV general validity, comparison
of ECV with other systems and stakeholder consultation. Phase (4) includes the ECV transfer to improved remediation technologies, the elaboration of standardisation
related issues and the establishment of a common ECV
