We also want to extend our thanks to our amazing keynote speakers Addrienn Tomor from The Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction, Pierre Bideaud from The Stonemasonry Company Limited and Giuseppe Fallacara Chirico from the Politecnico di Bari.
The Symposium was made possible by the support of our partners, including Universidade de Évora, Fravizel, Solancis SA, CEI – Companhia de Equipmentos Industriais, Lda., Granitos Cunha, Assimagra – Recursos Minerais de Portugal and Município de Pinhel.
