GERRI blends competences together in an interdisciplinary manner. This links the various interfaces along the value chain of mineral and metalliferous materials, enabling technically sound and sustainable operations.
In January 2017, Elinor Rombach and Ekaterina Schmid reported about a database management system for the competence mapping of the GERRI network in “World of Metallurgy - ERZMETALL”. GERRI’s structure and competence mapping is described in detail. Furthermore, the access to and search criteria on the virtual platform are introduced.
