Due to the Covid-19 situation the NORDROCS 2020 conference is postponed one year to 7th – 8th September 2021. 

A tentative deadline for a new abstract submission will be January 2021. More information will come on the webpage, and also on e-mail to those who already have submitted abstracts for the conference.

We hope to see you all in Oslo and Holmenkollen in September 2021.

NORDROCS 2021 will take place in the beautiful city of Oslo, Norway on September 6th-9th, with the main conference 7th – 8th, short courses on the 6th and an excursion the 9th. The conference will be arranged at the Holmenkollen Hotel with a stunning view of the city and the Oslo fjord. The organizing committee is now preparing the first call for abstracts. This website will be updated continuously as the planning of the conference proceeds.

The main objective for NORDROCS is “Crossing Borders” with the goal to share and discuss the way we manage contaminated land within the Nordic countries. Across the borders of the Nordic countries, we have a common interest and openness regarding development inside and outside the Nordic region. This is also true when it comes to the remediation of contaminated sites.

The Nordic countries have large natural and demographic variations. This has led to differences in approach and focus of the efforts to remediate contaminated sites. Therefore we have developed knowledge about different parts of the field of remediation of contaminated sites and this gives us a great opportunity to learn from each other.
