On 10th November, Ester Boixereu i Vila (IGME-CSIC) gave a presentation in Spanish on the START project at the headquarters of the professional association of Spanish geologists (ICOG), in Madrid. The conference, whose title in English would be “How to generate electricity from mining tailings”, was part of an event called Semana de la Ciencia y la Innovación (Science and Innovation Week) in Madrid. This week “is an event for scientific dissemination and citizen participation organized by the Community of Madrid through the Foundation for Knowledge Madri+d whose objective is to actively involve society in research processes and development in science, technology and innovation”, and is aimed at the general public. You can rewatch the presentation here, from the ICOG YouTube channel.
