The project should contribute to the aims and strategy of NICOLE.    
The aims of the network are to:    
(1)	provide a European forum for the dissemination and exchange of good practice, practical and scientific knowledge and ideas to manage contaminated 
land in a sustainable way; (2) stimulate coordinated, interdisciplinary projects on collaborative, problem oriented research and knowledge transfer to address identified needs;
and (3) develop new relationships and strengthen existing relationships with other networks.
Long Description: 
A limited budget for the funding of projects is available from NICOLE. This memo gives some rules with respect to the submission of proposals for such funding. 
Submission of proposals for project funding    
Funding for projects is reserved for consortia where NICOLE members are generally in the majority. The consortia should preferably represent as many different 
stakeholders (industry, service provider, researcher) as possible. Submission is only possible in response to a call for proposals by the Steering Group,
distributed by the NICOLE Secretariat and published on the NICOLE website. Financing of projects The overall budget for NICOLE funding of projects will be fixed every year. This budget forms the upper limit for the total contribution of NICOLE to NICOLE-projects.
The conditions for financing NICOLE projects are: • The NICOLE contribution is a maximum of a third of the total project budget and shall not exceed € 15,000 per project • The project should be co-financed by at least one NICOLE-member from the Industry Subgroup or Service Providers Subgroup Exceptions to the maximum funding of € 15,000 can be made, up to financing of even 100%, if the project is of strategic value to NICOLE.
