Duska Rokavec, Head of Mineral resources Department, Geological Survey of Slovenia will present at MINEX Russia 2019 in Moscow, 8-10 October.
Primary and secondary mineral raw materials are of strategic importance for EU. Most countries are already part of the pan‐European Minerals Intelligence Network which provides consistent and relevant mineral data on primary and secondary mineral resources. SEE region represents a gap in this network. EIT RawMaterials project named “RESEERVE”, financed by European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), addresses this challenge by creating SEE countries Mineral Register. Project’s consortium includes project partners from EU countries and task partners from SEE region, coordinated by Geological Survey of Slovenia. Project will integrate SEE region into pan-European mineral information system, encourage investments in SEE region, increase mineral management capacity, create regional opportunities for start‐ups and SMEs and consequently generate new jobs.
