REMEDIATE - A Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action Initial Training Network for “Improved decision-making in contaminated land site investigation and risk assessment”.

The REMEDIATE ITN has a fundamental objective to enhance the career prospects of young researchers by providing them with greatly enhanced scientific and technical knowledge as well as multidisciplinary skills and business aptitudes. Their research during the project will contribute to the development of technologies to help accelerate the remediation of contaminated sites, releasing land for industrial or domestic development.

REMEDIATE will support 14 researchers working in 10 organisations in UK, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and Italy, and is coordinated by the QUESTOR Centre at Queen's University Belfast (UK). The network also includes a further 15 partners, including Shell Global Solutions, who will provide secondment opportunities as part of the researchers’ training.
