Metal Earth Partner Advisory Meeting

Partners meet in Sudbury October 16th-28th to present recent research findings on project Metal Earth

Metal Earth Researchers from Laurentian U, Western U, Université du Québec À Chicoutimi (UQAC), Laval U, Ottawa U, and the University of Toronto gather in Sudbury, Ontario for three days to present and discuss recent findings across the Canadian research initiative.


Published presentations can be found below as well as on the Metal Earth Hub under "Research Presentations". Users can search by the presenting author, presentation title, or academic institution.
