Yesterday, March 22nd 2016, the world was shocked by the terrible news of terrorist attacks in Brussels. Only last week the kick-off meeting of our SoilCare project was held in Leuven, only 30 km away from Brussels. Many participants of the meeting travelled through Zaventem airport to reach our meeting.

We, as coordination team of the SoilCare project, express our sympathy and condolences to the relatives and friends of the victims of this terrible attack. Our thoughts also go out to the Belgian people and especially our colleagues and friends of Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Bodemkundige Dienst Belgie and Milieu. We want to let them know we stand beside them in these difficult times, and wish them the courage to continue all day life.

The SoilCare Coordination team.
