MetTrans - Metal Transport in the Environment

MetTrans is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network of academic and industrial partners with a focus on outstanding issues in the migration of metals in the environment.

Understanding the processes that control the transport of metals is essential for a wide range of fields, including environmental protection and remediation, mineral resources, and climate change.

Through recent analytical developments, it is now possible to use natural variations in metal isotopes to obtain new information on how metal behavior in natural waters is controlled by interactions with mineral surfaces, by biological activity, and by release during mineral weathering. This will significantly advancing our understanding of the transport of both natural and contaminant metals.

Training young scientists

The research will address a diversity of metal transport research questions using shared analytical, experimental, and theoretical approaches. This provides a platform for training young scientists in using of isotopic methods, understanding metal behaviour, and utilizing skills broadly.

The Network focuses on providing training on analytical skills, on understanding fundamental principles, and on modelling, and exposes young scientists to a wide range of opportunities for applying this training in research and industry.

A Marie Curie Research Training Network

MetTrans is a Marie Sklodowska Curie Network for Initial Training (ITN) and has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 290336
