12 February 2020
Add to my calendar
Event type:
Careers Day, Contributes to CPD, Specialist Group, Workshop
Organised by:
Contaminated Land Group
The Geological Society, Burlington House
Event status:

This network is a forum for land condition professionals in the early stages of their career (~first 10 years), designed to provide support, professional development and an opportunity to address skills gaps. Join this network to help shape the future of the land condition sector. 

For the first time, the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Geological Society (GeolSoc) are collaborating to bring you a unique half-day event for land condition early career professionals. This event will address the topic of 'big data', and provide training on how to manage large data sets, use open-source data management tools, and increase general understanding of how these can be used in current projects and the wider contaminated land management process.

Two invited senior professionals will deliver talks on the chosen theme before attendees break into two workshop streams, where you will receive training from leading sector professionals working with large data sets in the industry. 

This event is guaranteed to provide you with a rare opportunity to network, undertake valuable CPD and share knowledge outside of your immediate specialism.
