SOILUZIOAK 2023 Congress

The Basque Country organizes SOILUZIOAK 2023 - a unique congress on soil protection on 10 and 11 October 2023 at the Euskalduna Palace in Bilbao.

On 10 October the focus lies on the European soil protection scenario with sessions on the EU Soil Strategy for 2030, the Soil Health Act, the ‘Farm to Fork’ strategy and subsequent field trips.

Soil protection given society’s challenges will be the theme on 11 October addressing the cost of the deterioration of this resource for people, their health and the economy, along with its impact on climate and biodiversity.

The Congress will thus contribute to the effective deployment of the Basque Soil Protection Strategy 2030 by means of fostering a collaborative spirit and knowledge sharing.

PROMISCES at the AquaConSoil 2023

The EU-funded PROMISCES project (Preventing Recalcitrant Organic Mobile Industrial chemicalS for Circular Economy in the Soil-sediment-water system) will identify how industrial pollution prevents the development of a circular economy in the EU and detect strategies to overcome the principal bottlenecks. The project aims to enhance the ability to detect and monitor persistent, mobile and potentially toxic iPM(T) chemicals in the soil-sediment-water system and investigate sources of PM substances released from soil, sediments, landfills and wastewater treatment plants and via urban runoff into relevant natural systems. The project implements seven case studies to test novel technologies for the removal of iPM(T)s under real-life conditions in six European countries.

During the AquaConSoil conference in Prague (11 -15 September 2023), multiple presentations by PROMISCES partners will take place.

PROMISCES Work Package 5 organizes a Stakeholder Workshop on 13 September 2023, 11-12:30. The workshop aims to introduce and deliberate on the prototype for a Decision Support Framework (DSF) that addresses the management of iPM(T)s (additional information is available in the attached flyer).
