Over the last 10 years, NICOLE has carried out multiple projects and
organized a series of workshops, providing a discussion platform
and a sound technical basis for risk based management of
contaminated land. Reoccurring themes in the discussions on
risk-based land management are sustainability and
cost-efficiency. This year, the NICOLE Steering Group decided to
launch a yearly technology award. This award intends to
stimulate people to bring forward technical innovations that can
contribute to an improved practice for contaminated land
management in line with the NICOLE ambition. For 2010, entries
are invited that focus on 'Innovative site characterization
tools'. The award is open to individuals or groups of people.
Entries from junior academics in universities or consultancy are
especially welcome. Entries will be judged on innovation,
potential contribution to cost savings, technical applicability
and plans for communication and market availability. The Year
2010 deadline is October 31st. For more information.
