SoBRA: When & why?

SoBRA was established in December 2009 and since that time has held eleven annual conferences and ten summer workshops. More recently, SoBRA has also held early careers events.

Presentations from the annual conferences are available to SoBRA members and can be accessed on the Resources page.

Presentations from the summer workshops are available to SoBRA members and can be accessed on the Past Events page. Proceedings reports for the summer workshops can be found on the Resources page. Reports published within the past year are available to members only, older reports are accessible to all.

SoBRA also has a number of sub groups looking at various issues related to risk assessment.  One of these is the Accreditation Sub Group, which was formed to explore a potential role for SoBRA in providing accreditation for risk assessors working in the fields of human health and controlled waters (amongst others).  The SoBRA accreditation scheme was launched in July 2016.

SoBRA has several funding options available to SoBRA members to help promote research and furthering knowledge related to land contamination risk assessment in the UK.

Membership to SoBRA is open to any individual with an interest in the assessment of risks from land contamination.  Join SoBRA here.
