10 am - 12 am
This mini course will give you a quick introduction to the various EU funding opportunities available for companies, scientists and public organisations for R&D and innovation related projects within the Horizon 2020 programmes. Furthermore, the course will provide participants with best practice guidance on how to write a winning proposal, based on experiences from more than 200 proposals under FP7 and Horizon 2020. Finally, participants can sign-up for a 1:1 meeting to discuss match of project idea with relevant EU programmes. Innovayt is a privately held consultancy company who, since 2006, has specialized in writing application towards FP7 and Horizon 2020 within all technology areas, including soil remediation.

This short course is focusing on presenting examples on quality drilling and sampling methods, logging, and various pump test methods. The different testing techniques in soil and ground water is based on Geo´s huge field experience and long term subsurface expertise. The last many years the development of investigation techniques have been concentrated on -the often clayey- overburden. But a large part of the ground water resource around Copenhagen is found in limestone and chalk aquifers. These aquifers have double porous properties, which have a profound impact on contaminant transport. Investigation of soil or groundwater contaminants in these aquifers require high resolution measurements such as geophysical logging, discrete level sampling and coring to obtain relevant samples and high resolution understanding of the geological conditions. We will concentrate on state of the art on these investigation methods focusing on high quality of the work.

As you are involved in the characterization or the remediation of contaminated sites, you regularly face the following issues:
During the seminar, you will understand why geostatistics provides relevant methods to address these issues and how they can be applied in operational contexts.
Methodological talks illustrated with practical examples on real cases involving various types of pollution: chemical or radiological, leak from a source, reworked fills, etc. These examples involve several environmental media: soil, sediment, facilities (concrete). Ample time is allotted for discussion and feedback with participants.
• Understand and assess the spatial heterogeneity of pollution
• Predict and map in-situ pollution
• Quantify and locate contaminated volumes
