Phosphate Research Network (PhoResNet) gathers national and international scientists and industrials working on phosphates and derivatives. One of the main objectives of PhoResNet is to promote research in the field of phosphate and its derivatives and to create synergies between university researchers and industry.

In this context, PhoResNet organizes a biannual conference “International Conference for Research on Phosphates and Derivatives” ( Phosphate Days ) that provides a unique setting and space to bring together scientists and engineers, from all over the world to exchange new findings and develop collaborations and partnerships.
