Project objectives:
EUGRIS (European groundwater and contaminated land remediation information     
system) is a web based user-friendly information platform for contaminated land and     
groundwater information in development. EUGRIS is funded by the European     
Commission from March 2003 up to August 2005. The project team consists of 11     
partners of national ministries and authorities, research organisations, SMEs and     
consultants from Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy and United Kingdom.     
The Federal Environmental Agency Germany co-ordinates the project.     
The objectives are:     
- to develop a guided, scaleable and holistic approach to providing information about contaminated land and groundwater     
- to provide access this information to users with different perspectives such as technical, policy or country point of view     
- to offer a research management tool     
- to provide a linkage of networks and national initiatives to a central European hub    
- to kick off a modular European information system for soil and groundwater.   
EUGRIS is openly available and provide a comprehensive and overarching information resource for sustainable groundwater and land management practice. 
EUGRIS directs any user to the most appropriate source rather than store vast amounts of information itself. The information EUGRIS provides is a series of reviews, summaries and locations for more detailed sources across Europe. EUGRIS as dissemination tool aspires to act as a 'central broker' of information. EUGRIS is closely linked to other ongoing European activities. The modular structure allows a quick integration of further technical content and new country pages.
Project Summary:
This proposal outlines an Accompanying Measure to develop an European web based information management system(EUGRIS)on groundwater and contamminated 
land remediation. The management of this issues requires complex interdisciplinary expertice as well as a considerable amount of supporting technical information
and knowledge. EUGRIS will be generally available and applicable providing a comprehensive and overarching information and innovation resource. The gateway
will provide a 'one stop shop' for information provided by research projects, legislation, standards, best prctice and other technical guidance and policy/regulatory
publications from the EC, participating Member and Accession States and from various international networks dealing with groundwater and contaminated
land issues.
