Project objectives:
Complex hazardous contamination of soil and water are obstructing sustainable re-development of previously industrialized urban land in Europe as well 
as in China. Although several significant efforts have already been developed, a systematic and integrated approach for the sustainable management of contaminated
sites is still lacking. The main objective of this program is to strengthen the quality of research by developing international collaborations and advance
the decision making on complex issues in contaminated land management.
Project Summary:
Specifically, in this collaboration:  
Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (UNIVE) will involve its expertise on multicriteria decision analysis, decision support systems and risk assessment; 
Umeć University (UMU) will bring understanding of mobilization processes for persistent organic and inorganic pollutants in soil and ground water; Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences (CRAES) will offer its expertise on ecology, risk assessment and management of contaminated site;
Beijing Normal University (BNU) will offer its expertise on environment risk assessment and characteristic of soil pollution.
