New EU-funded project on in situ groundwater remediation

Steve Thornton has been awarded an EU grant to establish a Marie-Curie Initial Training Network on the theme of sustainable in situ groundwater remediation. Named ADVOCATE, the project includes research partners in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Poland and Switzerland, and is supported by a wide range of industry partners across these countries. The project will start in April 2011 and run for four years, with the aim of providing advanced training in this field to young international researchers.
