INfrastructure Get involved... CIRIA, in collaboration with University of Brighton, will be holding a future workshop in London to: explore the different options for unlocking the potential of brownfield sites discuss the different funding mechanisms for the various options examine the finding of several major European project such as the GREENLAND and HOMBRE projects (Menger et al, 2012) demonstrate good practice though case studies. To find out more, please contact Joanne Kwan, CIRIA, on: joanne.kwan@ciria.org Acknowledgements This work was financially supported by the European Commission under its seventh framework programme for research (FP7-KBBE-266124, GREENLAND). This article summarises arguments, which can be found in full in the Journal of Environmental Management, vol 129, p 283–291. * this paper was prepared by Professor A Cundy, University of Brighton, Dr P Bardos, R3 Environmental Technology Ltd, A.
