The overall objective is to enhance the development of chemical sensors, biosensors and bio mimetic systems for practical applications in the abatement of water pollution from contaminated land, landfills and sediment. The aim is to provide "in site" monitoring of environmental pollutants in water and contaminated soil and sediments, to facilitate optimisation of remediation technologies and natural attenuation processes. The proposed 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. Paths will be identified to resolve the most effective sensor systems for use in monitoring multiple pollutants contaminating water, soil and sediments and for use in site management in order to protect ground and surface water from pollution.
