Long description: The EUGRIS portal is a web based user-friendly information platform for contaminated land and groundwater information. EUGRIS allows all stakeholders from industry, administration and research equal access to information of high quality from a single point of access. The meta-database intends to direct any user to the most appropriate source rather than store vast amounts of information itself. EUGRIS offers technical content and overviews of policy and regulations, management schemes, research funding, research projects and their outputs and library & links on a European and national level. Registered users can submit information in all parts of the gateway simply using a web browser. For example, news, courses and conferences, library resources, who does what entries, project and funding information can be directly submitted online in minutes. EUGRIS as dissemination tool aspires to act as a 'central broker' for information in Europe. EUGRIS is closely linked to other ongoing European activities. The modular structure of the system allows a quick integration of further technical content and new country pages. The development of the portal is funded within the 5th Framework Program of the European Commission. The Federal Environmental Agency Germany co-ordinates the consortium of 11 partners from Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy and the UK.
