La Palma Research Centre (LPRC) team presented the UNEXMIN project in ‘Semanas de la Ciencia y la Innovación en Canarias‘, a scientific event which took place between the 7th and 11th of November across the Canary Islands, and which is regarded as one of the most important scientific events in the region.
During the week, UNEXMIN had a permanent exhibition with posters, brochures, images, and videos. This material communicated all the basic information about the project such as objectives, impacts, and preliminary results. Further information regarding UNEXMIN was communicated by LPRC staff in four separate oral presentations: these presentations included more detailed information about the project, and significantly improved awareness of UNEXMIN in the audience, and the wider community.
The presentations were mainly given to science-interested students and adults – an important group of stakeholders for this technology and science-innovation project.
UNEXMIN is a European-funded project, and it is required that there is a communication programme active throughout Europe in the hope the technology being developed is acknowledged by the majority of interested parties: the raw materials community, technology developers for minerals exploration, ICT and robotic solutions providers and the general public.
Dissemination activities will become more common – so if you hear about the project being in town, come visit us and find out more!
