About this event

Demystifying Brownfield Land Development – A 1.5 day workshop for Black Country SMEs
5th/6th October 2021

University of Wolverhampton Springfield Campus

A fully funded workshop to introduce Black Country SMEs to brownfield land development.

The Brownfield Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC) extends an invitation to eligible* SMEs to submit an expression of interest to attend this knowledge transfer workshop to introduce them to brownfield land development. This is aimed at companies considering development but who are cautious or concerned about the complexities that can be associated with brownfield sites.

The number of invitations are limited so quick uptake of this offer is advised.

Book your place here


Once you have submitted your expression of interest a member of the BRIC team will contact you to chat through the workshop content and walk you through the process to attend as this will require some documentation to be completed.

Any questions you may have before signing up can be directed to Janet Bayley: j.bayley2@wlv.ac.uk
