Since 1996, the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences has been organizing an international scientific and professional symposium entitled Non-metallic Inorganic Materials – Production – Processing – Application. The first five symposiums were reviews of scientific and professional activities from all areas of non-metallic inorganic materials, which brought together scientists and experts from faculties, institutes, and businesses whose main areas of activity are the production and processing of non-metallic mineral raw materials as well as their application.
In 2006, the International Scientific-Research Symposium was transformed into a symposium entitled Metallic and Non-metallic Materials – Production – Properties – Application”, expanding its topic to the field of metal materials and the protection of the working and environment and sustainable development. As part of the scientific research symposium, a plenary session (introductory and invited papers for global topics), oral and poster presentations of papers on the topics of the meeting and, if necessary, working meetings are organized. The symposium is held every two years.


From 27 to 28 April 2023 the 14th Scientific and research Symposium Metallic and Non-metallic Materials – Production – Properties – Application (MNM2023) was held.
At the symposium, four plenary lectures and 43 papers were presented, of which 26 were oral and 17 were presented in the form of posters.
Out of the total number of papers, 22 papers were from the field of metal, 7 from the field of non-metallic materials and 14 papers from the field of protection of working and living environment and sustainable development.

Plenary lectures were held by:

Jasmina Grbović Novaković, Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences, Institute of National Importance for the Republic of Serbia, University of Belgrade
Mirjana D. Stojanović, Engineering Academy of Serbia, Belgrade
Milan J. Adamović, Institute for Technology of Nuclear and Other Mineral Resources, Belgrade, Republic of Serbia

The next Symposium will be held in April 2025.
