​CIGRAC 2020⁺¹ aims to be a privileged space for the dissemination of practical and scientific knowledge, the exchange of ideas and best practices in the sustainable management of contaminated areas (brownfields) approaching topics ranging from contaminated site investigation and assessment, to risk analysis to human health and the environment, treatment and remediation technologies for site rehabilitation and reuse legal aspects, and environmental and safety liability.

​CIGRAC will also be a meeting point for service providers in the field of diagnosis, risk assessment and decontamination management, industrial and academic researchers, regulators, lawyers, real estate developers, representatives of potentially polluting industries, insurers and all who participate in the vast market of brownfield rehabilitation.

​In addition, short courses will be held on some of the most relevant topics, such as: high resolution diagnostic techniques, emerging contaminants, risk assessment, legal aspects, vapor intrusion, etc.
