Risk e-Learning Web Seminars
Superfund Research Program
The SRP conducts interactive, Web-based "Risk e-Learning" seminars in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER). These live, two-hour events are hosted on the Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website and provide information about innovative treatment and site characterization technologies to the hazardous waste remediation community: EPA risk assessors and regional project managers, state and local regulatory agencies, environmental engineering/consulting firms, and academia.
Superfund Research Program Colleagues
"Congratulations! With your high quality content, consistency, and networking, you've made significant inroads into EPA's Superfund / Hazardous Waste Community...Small wonder with your on-target webinar series over the past couple of years, from those on nanotechnology to ecological risk tools to bioavailability to the imminent series on sediment reduction."
— Charles G. Maurice, Ph.D. ORD Superfund Technology Liaison Region 5
The current series, Integrating Data from Multidisciplinary Research, explores challenges and opportunities for integrating datasets to solve complex environmental health problems. Speakers introduce and discuss the concept of big data as it relates to environmental health science and provide examples of current initiatives.
