This presentation was very well received by the audience consisting mainly of academics, university professors, but also industrialist.

Cerame Unie – The European Ceramic Industry Association - represents the European ceramic industry. The Cerame Unie mission is to ensure that the voice of this competitive, dynamic and innovative Ceramic industry is heard at the EU level.
