EIT RawMaterials Community Conference: „Implementing innovation for monitoring and re-activation of the European mining industry”
5 - 6 December 2019
This conference is a combined partner meeting of the EIT RawMaterials supported innovation projects RE-ACTIVATE and STINGS, and a forum for monitoring and re-activation of former mine sites. Professionals from industry, education and research will have the chance to discuss and interact with different stakeholders and decision-makers, i.e. Romanian government officials and international mining experts.
This event will take place in Bucharest on 5 December, followed by the project partner workshops on 6 December. The venue for the first day is the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Romania and for the second day the “Politehnica” University of Bucharest. Organizers are DMT and the Ovidius University of Constanta.
RE-ACTIVATE: Developing superior technical infrastructure throughout EIT RawMaterials community to foster technologies and methodologies for re-activation of former mine sites
Re-opening of old mine sites bears many challenges in environmental, technical, social and economic questions. Thus, RE-ACTIVATE is an expert network with a single point of contact, which offers innovative services, technologies and solutions for all related issues and demands.
STINGS: Supervision of Tailings by an Integrated Novel Approach to combine Ground-based- and Spaceborne Sensor data
Currently, there is a lack of an integrated operational approach for the management of structural and environmental risks related to tailings operations. For this purpose, STINGS aims to develop an integrated monitoring system combining space-borne remote sensing, ground-based sensor technologies and scenario modelling for stability and hydro-related effects. The developed approach shall be further used and offered as one of the services of the RE-ACTIVATE network.
The dialogue conference on Thursday, 5 December 2019 is open for stakeholders from industry, NGOs, politics, universities and research organisations, and there is no registration fee.
