Global repository of training programs and networks on raw materials in the EU and advanced mining countries

A database, including a web-interface, will be available showing all raw materials training activities identified throughout WP1. The interface will be designed like a wiki, interlinked with geographic information of the available training programmes, their strengths, weaknesses, protagonists, languages, content in relation to other courses (e.g. what is the overlap), number of participants, target audience (students, post- graduates, others), duration & workload, skills developed, and nature of classes (practical vs. theoretical). The database will have open access, and will receive contributions from those willing to provide content and updates.

Hub and spoke website

The ‘hub and spoke’ website will ombine all possible platforms for general communication: 1) the website itself 2) links with social media (i.e. Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Slideshare) 3) news and media providers 4) information concerning training centres and interested organisations (professional bodies, industry associations

Communication Plan

The Communication Plan will carefully identify prospective target audiences (e.g. postgraduate students, young professionals, teachers and educators, training centres, research centres and universities, industry representatives, professional organisations, policy makers, science communicators, interested NGOs), and will develop appropriate tailored messages to facilitate identification with INTERMIN objectives and expected results

International qualification framework for the raw materials sector

This deliverable will set up a qualification framework at international level for the raw materials sector by the combination of the two European Qualifications Frameworks and thus facilitate the international recognition of the training programmes.

Integrated competency model for employment across the raw materials sector

This deliverable includes a Competency Model and corresponding recommendations for the development of future training agendas and curricula on raw materials in Europe and world-wide.

Project Management Plan

This plan will cover project consortium management (preparation of the consortium agreement, internal communication and decision structures, oversight and quality control of WP implementation, anticipating risks and resolving conflicts) and representation of the project towards external stakeholders (including the establishment of efficient communication and reporting structures, project documentation and timely submission of deliverables).

Best practice guidelines for training in the raw materials sector

This deliverable will provide best practice guidelines for the raw materials related training programmes which will enhance the mobility of professionals and trainees at international level.

Skills catalogue for the raw materials sector

This deliverable will report on the skills identified as the key skills for raw materials education. This includes the definition of a coherent system of skills (and the corresponding boundary) used by the raw materials sector (going far beyond the geoscience professions recognised by the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations - ESCO). The data will be available as a report and will subsequently be used throughout the project as a key for further interpretation and definitions.

Database process manual

A manual will be designed describing how to use the database described in D1.3. This will be for the benefit of the project partners as well as for the public who are interested in available trainings and educational activities.

Roadmap on skills provisioning for the raw materials sector

The roadmap will be divided as immediate, medium, long-term corresponding to the three timeframes investigated: immediate, medium and long term

Interim Management Report 1

The first progress report present the preliminary findings during the first 15 months of research. The interim report will let a project’s stakeholders know how an intervention is going.

Report on tailored metrics and reference points for quality assurance and international recognition of training on raw materials related topics

This deliverable will provide tailored metrics and reference points for raw materials related training programmes. Based on that, the training programmes can be recognised at international level and quality assurance can be provided.

Report on skills gaps

At the end of WP2-tasks 1 to 3 the report will help to understand what is missing from present day education and how it should be tailored to meet industry needs according to different timeframes. Immediate needs are expected to fit within the present day trend in the sector

Procedures on Ethics Requirement and Data Management plan

This deliverable adresses the procedures for gender issues and ethics The DMP will outline how data are to be handled. In order to meet EU requirements The proposed deliverable will address the following: - Details on the procedures and criteria that will be used to identify/recruit research participants. - Detailed information will be provided on the informed consent procedures that will be implemented for the participation of humans. - In case of data not publicly available, relevant authorisations will be provided, in particular, with regards to the US Government restricted data on college graduates. - Detailed information on the informed consent procedures that will be implemented in regard to the collection, storage and protection of personal data. - Detailed information must be provided on the procedures that will be implemented for data collection, storage, protection, retention and destruction and confirmation that they comply with national and EU legislation. - Detailed information must be provided on the procedures that will be implemented for data collection, storage, protection, retention and destruction and confirmation that they comply with national and EU legislation.
