The Kick-off meeting of the Combined Heat, Power and Metal extraction from ultra-deep ore bodies (CHPM2030) project took place in Miskolc, Hungary on 28 and 29 January 2016. Organised by the Project coordinator (University of Miskolc), the meeting was attended by partners from 9 European countries representing 11 different universities, associations and companies.

The main objective of the meeting was to present the project plan in more detail, with a clear time frame, and to clarify the role of each partner in relation to the different work packages. In addition, each work package leader presented the activity plans for their deliverables. Round tables discussions were organised where project partners exchanged their opinions on relevant topics such as dissemination and communication, deliverables, methodology and the overall task distribution.
