SCLF is pleased to announce its eighth annual one day conference, which will take place during the first two weeks of September 2017 – date to be confirmed once venue bookings are finalised.  We expect to emulate last year’s highly successful event.  The aim of the conference is to facilitate knowledge transfer in the contaminated land sector.

The conference will be headlined by a keynote presentation and will be supported by panel discussions to discuss emerging issues.  We strive to deliver an interdisciplinary mix of presenters and a broad spectrum of perspectives on the current state of contaminated land.
