Short description: SENSPOL (Sensors for Monitoring Water Pollution from Contaminated Land, Landfills and Sediments) was a European Thematic Network aimed to enhance the development of sensors for practical applications in the abatement of water pollution. 
Long description: The SENSPOL European Thematic Network aimed to enhance the development of sensors for practical applications in the abatement of water pollution. SENSPOL commenced in August 2000 and its role was to guide technological development of sensors for environmental pollutants. It accelerated the development of chemical sensors, biosensors and biomimetic systems to provide sensitive and robust devices for monitoring in water, contaminated soil and sediments. The work was based on a series of European meetings, a centralised information facility and a broad collaboration programme. SENSPOL's work built from the platform established by the BIOSET Concerted Action on Biosensors for Environmental Technology. SENSPOL finished on 31st January 2004 but information on the project is available from the website.
