The Universidad Católica de Uruguay organized with the support of EUSMAT a workshop on Processing and Characterization of Advanced Steel and Alloys. About 25 researchers of Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil and Germany, mostly of them participants in the EU projects SUMA2-Network and CREATe-Network, met together in Montevideo to discuss about new research results obtained in the mentioned topic within the last months.

A representative of the Agencia Nacional de Investigación e Innovación gave also an overview of funding programmes supported by the uruguayan government, especially for transfer activities between academic institutions and industry. Beside members of universities and research centers, also representatives of the steel producer companies Tenaris and Gerdau participated of the event. One of the main goals was to define new topics for future common projects.
