Title: Correspondence Between Projective Invariant Metric-Affine Theories and General Relativity 

Abstract: In this technical seminar will be shown that in a broad class of metric-affine theories, the torsion can be reduced to a projective mode if the theory is described in terms of a proper auxiliary metric. In these cases, a possible correspondence between ordinary general Relativity and Ricci based metric -affine theories will be presented when the matter sector describes a minimally coupled scalar field.
