Besides, we had the opportunity to attend the ‘Horizon 2020 Technology success stories’ event were the objective was to underline how activities in the area of raw materials will benefit from project developments, such as Metgrow Plus in which IDENER is one of the partners involved.

On the second day, IDENER could be part of the ‘Innovation, New Technology Trends, and Skills for Raw Materials’. In this event, new technology trends in exploration, mining, and processing were presented. After that, the session turned to a discussion about how to keep and develop knowledge and skills for professionals in the raw materials sector. Finally, the event ended up with a brokerage session in which project ideas were presented by stakeholders.
