From hydrogen to rare earths”. Its objective: to share the importance of the periodic table and the relevance of the elements for the development of various applications.
The event will feature the participation of Javier Peña, CEO of Elisava, who will talk about his novel 'Elements. The Empire of Coltán’, which shows climate change giving life to chemical elements. The program will be completed with several presentations by professors from the UPV / EHU and researchers from K4-TEKNIKER.
