Existing knowledge

SNOWMAN Landscape

The SNOWMAN Landscape is a database of SNOWMAN, EU and national research projects, categorized by the SNOWMAN Network research areas and research questions. We aim to provide a better overview of all research projects in the field of soil and groundwater in Europe

Goals of the SNOWMAN Landscape

  • Create a ‘map’ of existing knowledge
  • Create a ‘map’ for researchers, showing where there is work done on similar research questions
  • Create awareness among funders that if you join SNOWMAN, you have access to much more information/research results
  • Help defining gaps

Sustainable Remediation, a Swedish knowledge-based programme

Sustainable Remediation is a program in the field of remediation of contaminated areas. During the programme period from 2003 to 2009 the authorities, researchers and companies have pursued about 50 projects within the following areas:

  • Site investigations
  • Risk assessment
  • Risk evaluation
  • Risk communication
  • Remedial measures

The results of the projects are presented in a series of reports from Sustainable Remediation. The accumulated knowledge gathered by the programme have been summarised and the most important results have been identified.
