"I'm sure that SRCR '11 was a great opportunity to increase my network and to get know more about research lines focused on a "sustainability thinking"... so important for the future of mining industries... I'm so glad for it and I hope to be able to attend SRCR '14!"
"This was my first participation in a MEI event, and I must say that it was a truly fruitful and enjoyable experience.
