Professor Dragan Urošević, an expert in the PLEJADES GmbH International Experts’ project team, presented to students and academical staff from Belgrade and Bor the results of the project “Cadastre of Mining Waste in Republic of Serbia”.
Professor Urošević delivered two lectures in Belgrade on December 18, 2019 to the students of the Faculty of Geography of the University of Belgrade. One lecture was delivered to the students of the third year who attend “Environmental protection” course, while the second lecture was delivered to students of the forth year attending “Land and Water Monitoring” subject teached by Ivan Novković, Assistant Professor.
The lecture held at the Technical Faculty in Bor on January 10, 2020 was also delivered by Professor Urošević, who presented to students the project methodology, as well as the project results with a special focus on the results of the field work and results of the analysis conducted in the laboratory of the Institute for Mining and Metallurgy in Bor.
Students also had opportunity to find out more about the new cadastre, that was created during the project and that will be available in the form of a book and web application.
“Students studying environmental protection courses and preparing themselves for the professions to solve numerous problems in the sector, demonstrated solid interest for the topic of mining waste management. The discussion with students and the questions the students raised demonstrate their interest for the topic, but also that they have ideas how to solve the mining waste problem. This demonstrates that students are very good at making relations between the knowledge they get during the studies with new information about the mining waste. They also pointed at the importance of public access to the data presented in the cadastre of mining waste,“ Professor Urošević said following the lectures he delivered to students.
