Long description: NICOLE initiated a meeting about brownfields remediation and redevelopment as part of its ongoing conference series, which is outlined in Table 1. The focus of the workshop was to explore cost and benefits of land remediation from the perspectives of different stakeholders, and in particular to explore how the wider economic, environmental and social values of remediation work might be assessed and balanced to provide a sound basis for decision making and sustainable development. The programme included a series of presentations and parallel sessions: • Session on cost effectiveness, cost and benefits appraisal and communication strategy • Problem holders / service providers perspective on the use and acceptance of remediation technologies from France, Belgium and Italy • Case Studies: parallel sessions introducing problem sites from France, the Netherlands and Germany, comparing the views of the workshop on best approach with what actually took place • Regulator perspectives on the use and acceptance of remediation technologies from France, Belgium and Italy • Session on quality assurance. This meeting report includes summaries of the presentations and reports of parallel session analyses. It also includes discussion sections, where the key points made during workshop exchanges between delegates are summarised.
