MEtRICS - Centro de Engenharia Mecânica e Sustentabilidade de Recursos

Organization profile

Profile Information

The Mechanical Engineering and Resource Sustainability Center (MEtRICs) resulted from the merging of two units: partly from the Centre for Mechanics and Materials Technologies (CT2M, UMinho) and Unit of Environmental Biotechnology (UBiA, UNL). The MEtRICs mission is to create scientific knowledge and provide technical solutions for a cleaner, safer and sustainable world. More information can be found at the following link www.metrics.pt.
