Contaminated land-->Risk assessment-->Risk assessment overview
Water and sanitation-->Wastewater
Project objectives:
The activity of the Centre is closely linked with European research areas through networking, scientific exchange and twinning. The priorities embrace: 
targeting the potential of the Centre at activities connected with the 5th FP - and 6th FP; strengthening of existing ties based on twinning with units from EU
countries (Germany, Sweden, UK, Greece), NAS (Bulgaria, Cyprus) and Ukraine; participation in the preparation of applications for EU research grants; promotion
of modern methods of environmental monitoring and complex environmental risk assessment; education pertaining to the management of hazardous wastes in
accordance with EU guidelines; introduction of environment management methods; encouraging young researchers from EU countries and NAS to accept research
training at the centre in the field of biomonitoring, protection of the environment and nature conservation; creation of a market demand for expert opinions
aimed at substantially reducing environmental impact. The project consists of 8 work packages: Biomonitoring - development and promotion of new non-invasive
methods; Speciation analysis as modern tool for environmental risk assessment; Management of sewage sludge from wastewater treatment plant - new technologies;
Landfill leakage - biological and chemical treatment technologies; Health risk connected with quality of food; Postgraduate studies and summer school;
Promotion and dissemination; Coordination
Project Summary:
The objective of the proposal is to create CEMERA, a leader in Central Europe in the area of complex environmental protection and closely tied to the quality 
of life of the individual. The activity of the Centre will be based on interdisciplinary research groups composed of scientistsfrom both EU and NAS countries.
The activity of the Centre will be closely linked with ERA through networking, scientific exchange, twinning. Reaching the goals of Cemera will allow in the
future: improved preparation of new landfills and better management of existing ones; creation a basis for the rational taking of decisions that, will be compatible
with social expectations regarding protection of the environment as a result of the educational and information drives; increased social acceptation for
the use of recycled materials , horticulture and forestry; increased social trust. in scientific authorities in the fields of environmental protection
