Communication with Stakeholders Clustering workshop Sustainable Low Impact Mining (SLIM) – Best Practices in Raw Materials in Europe

The European H2020 project SLIM - "Sustainable Low Impact Mining solution for exploitation of small mineral deposits based on advanced rock blasting and environmental technologies" led by Technical University of Madrid invites you to the 1st SLIM Clustering Conference, one day before the official opening of the EFEE Conference in Helsinki.

The SLIM project kindly invites you to take part in the Clustering Workshop Sustainable Low Impact Mining (SLIM) – Best practices in Raw Materials in Europe at Scandic Marina Congress Center, Helsinki, Finland on 14 September 2019 from 2 pm to 6:30 pm. This is the day before the start of the EFEE 2019 conference (European Federation of Explosives Engineers) and thus very convenient for participants in this conference. Please reserve your place in our workshop, which is by the way free of charge, by registering here: Aim of the Clustering workshop One particular objective of SLIM is to engage with all affected stakeholders. Apart from other information and communication means, the information and discussion about best practices based on project results in dedicated workshops is one suitable way to do so. Four relevant H2020 projects will be discussed at the clustering workshop: >> SIMS European Sustainable Intelligent Mining Systems - >> ITERAMS Integrated Mineral Technologies for More Sustainable Raw Material Supply - >> X-MINE Real-Time Mineral X-Ray Analysis for Efficient and Sustainable Mining - >> SLIM Sustainable Low Impact Mining -
