SENSORS FOR MONITORING WATER POLLUTION FROM CONTAMINATED LAND, LANDFILLS AND SEDIMENTS - SENSPOL

Project Details

Description


The SENSPOL Thematic Network will enhance the development of chemical
sensors, biosensors and biomimetic systems for practical applications in the
abatement of water pollution from contaminated land, landfills and sediment. It
will also aid EU decision making in the environmental area.

Scientific objectives and approach:
The SENSPOL Thematic Network will target the accelerated development of
chemical sensors, biosensors and biomimetic systems to provide sensitive and
robust devices for monitoring environmental pollutants in water and contaminated
soil and sediments. The objective is to provide in situ monitoring of environmental
pollutants in water and contaminated soil and sediments. The work programme
is based on a series of European meetings, a centralised information facility and
a broad collaboration programme. SENSPOL will cluster the sensor development
activities in the EU's environmental projects and act as a catalyst for the
advancement of European technology for monitoring the environment. The
resulting sensors will be capable of on-line operation and real-time
measurements of pollutants and their effects.
