UNEXMIN project coordinator Norbert Zajzon has been in Brussels during the event ‘Exchange of best practices on mining policies and technologies: challenges in the current state of the global economy’, on the 28th and 29th of June. This event was a follow-up of the ‘EU-Advanced mining countries Raw Materials Diplomacy Dialogue‘. In addition to attendees from EU member-states, other countries attended, including South Africa, Australia, Canada, USA, Mexico, Peru, Brazil and Chile.
The main topics addressed and discussed during this international event were mainly about the challenges for the mining sector given the current global economy and commodity prices, mining waste-management, and ongoing EU actions on international co-operation on raw materials.
The UNEXMIN team were invited to present a poster at this international event – and we gladly did: it was a perfect way to make UNEXMIN project noticeable amidst stakeholders. According to Norbert Zajzon ‘everyone was impressed by the poster and the brochures, there were good discussions, and many curious people who wanted to get more information on the project.’ So this was a great opportunity to show this recent and ambitious EU-funded project. UNEXMIN even garnered interest from international institutions present at the event, including the Mining Association of Canada and the Mexican Geological Survey, who asked to be kept informed on the project’s development and who will, from now on, follow-up closely.
UNEXMIN is growing and more and more people are becoming aware of the new technology trend that is being developed!
