The 8th Scientific International Confernece INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR REVITALISATION OF DEGRADED AREAS will be held in Ustroń and Katowice from 6 th till  8th October 2014. Conference is organized by The Research and Supervisory Center of Underground Mining Co. Ltd., Ledziny, Poland and Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas, Katowice, Poland.

The goal of the conference is presentation of achievements and results of scientific and research works, practic technical and organizational solutions supporting the balanced development of degraded sites.

This year the key issue addressed during the Conference will be revitalisation of brownfields and post-industrial facilities.

Revitalisation of brownfields and degraded areas is one of the greatest challenges posed to the so called old industrial regions. One of the most important factors in the development of regions, which have undergone the process of industry restructuring, is a complex revitalisation of post-industrial areas and facilities which remained after this process.

Industrial areas and facilities have been an integral part of the landscape for many years. However, if regarded as a resource, they might become an asset, which could play a significant role in the strategy of sustainable development, both at a local and national level. Their proper functioning, however, requires a number of modern, innovative actions: environmental, spatial-planning, investment, construction as well as socio-economic.
