The Geological Society Janet Watson 2017 Meeting

The Geological Society Janet Watson 2017 Meeting


With 2017 being the ‘Year of Risk’, the Contaminated Land Group are proud to be hosting this year’s Janet Watson meeting.

The conference will explore emerging science, technologies and guidance in the contaminated land industry, told from the viewpoint of all the key stakeholders: the site owner, consultant, contractor and regulator.

The programme will be varied, including workshops, an expert panel discussion and presentations by speakers from a variety of backgrounds. Whilst offering all delegates the opportunity to become up to date with many of the latest technologies and guidance, this conference will also be an excellent opportunity for networking, and particularly beneficial for early-career professionals who are interested in or are currently working towards chartership in contaminated land.

Keynote talks will be provided by accomplished industry leaders and the conference will provide a platform for scientific developments and innovative projects presented by the students, academics and early-career professionals working on them.

Conference Themes:
Innovative investigation and risk assessment

Understanding, managing and communicating risk

Emerging remediation technologies

New guidance, standards, accreditation and the evolving role of the regulator

Sponsorship opportunites are available.
