IMPC global survey on academic research
The information obtained from this survey will be regularly updated and made available through the website of the International Mineral Processing Council. The outcome of the survey will serve as a portal for anyone wishing to obtain information on the activities of research groups around the world engaged in the area of mineral processing. The survey will be open for responses until four weeks prior to the XXX IMPC Congress in Cape Town, South Africa (October 2020).

To access the updated results and for more general information about the International Mineral Processing Council, please refer to the website www.impc-council.com.
