SoBRA (the Society of Brownfield Risk Assessment) is holding its AGM next month. The event will take place on Wednesday, December 16th 2015, at the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) premises in London.

In collaboration with the RSC Toxicology Group, SoBRA will also be holding a conference on the same day, titled ‘Current Issues in Contaminated Land Risk Assessment.’ The conference will include a poster display covering a range of key research topics and case studies. The topics that will be discussed include:
