Summer School “Building interdisciplinary tools for long-term contaminated site management”
hosted by Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig, Germany
16 – 20 June 2014
The summer school carried out the development of the fundamental building blocks of site management (handling scientific uncertainty) to cover decision making at the local scale (public understanding of risk) and regional scale (constructive conflict resolution). Scenarios covered emphasise innovative options such as the cost of re-using brownfields for energy production. With a hands-on approach that includes modelling tutorials and a visit to a remediation site, participants will be challenged to use scientific and socio-economic data to develop sustainable site administration plans.
