Final conference

The Final Conference of INSURE took place in Norrköping on April 10th 2019. The aim of the day was to present all the highlights of the project including sustainable remediation at the pilot areas, management methods to create more efficient and increased remediation rate and development of technical tools such as GIS, models and databases.

The invitation to the Final Conference was sent to authorities, universities, consultants and enterprises who have an interest in the work with contaminated sites. In total the conference had around 80 participants.
