The IES launches their first symposium for land condition professionals.
This one-day technical symposium focuses on knowledge exchange, debate and discussion addressing topical issues at the centre of land condition.
Hear from experts at the cutting edge of research, policy and practice in the assessment and remediation of land, alongside ample opportunity to network with peers from across the sector and gain valuable CPD.
This inaugural event will have presentations on topical issues within the sector, examples of practical application and case studies and close with a panel discussion of how the industry may evolve over the next 25 years.
Are you an expert practitioner, remediator, consultant, academic, researcher, or a central, regional or local government officer working in land condition? Then this event is for you.
