The Cooperative Research Centre for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment (CRC CARE) has partnered with the Global Centre for Environmental Remediation (GCER), the University of Newcastle (UoN) to deliver our first Australian Summer School on Contaminated Site Assessment, Management and Communication.

This course has been developed especially for individuals who manage, regulate, investigate, remediate, or are impacted by contaminated sites. It provides participants with a unique appreciation of the underpinning science and technology coupled with practical approaches to site characterisation, assessment and remediation as well as risk communication.

Regardless of their current level of expertise, this course will provide participants with enhanced skills, knowledge, networks and confidence to manage even the most challenging sites and help them become leaders in the global remediation industry.

This is an all-inclusive course that draws together new knowledge with practical experience to provide participants with the cutting-edge skills to manage and remediate contaminated sites all around the world. This course has been developed in response to the critical need to build capacity to address the growing global contamination crisis. While technical lessons can be learned through the study of past projects, an advantage of this course will be the semi-structured discussions, problem solving and personal interactions that allow participants to consider the many facets of modern contaminant site assessment and remedial design. The course will also discuss aspects of sustainable low impact remediation approaches, climate change considerations, policy and regulatory matters, and economic considerations – all within a context of gaining and maintaining a social licence to operate.
