The visit was the final research exchange within the research project called “Co-op in Enabling Improved Prod. & Safety in Underground Mines between Sweden and South Africa” that was finished in the end of 2015.

The main purpose of this research visit was to build contacts between the two research environments and develop research ideas together. For PhD-student Filip Barac this was his second visit at the University of Pretoria and the highlight of the trip was a visit to the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), the most important research and development organization in South Africa. Luca Beltramelli started his PhD-studies at STC in august 2015 and this visit was his first to a foreign university as a guest researcher. A trip that has been both an educating and eye-opening experience for him.
