PROMETIA’s third Scientific Seminar

PROMETIA’s third Scientific Seminar

The annual PROMETIA Scientific Seminar was held on 14-15 December 2016 in Berlin, Germany. The  event focused on the involvement of PROMETIA members in collaborative projects (H2020, KIC, ERAMIN, and more…). Through scientific talks, members presented the work they are carrying out in mineral processing and extractive metallurgy as part of these research projects.
