• About the project

    MINATURA2020 aims to develop a concept and methodology for the definition of mineral deposits of public importance (MDoPI) in order to ensure their best-use in the future.

    One of the biggest policy-making challenges in Europe today is the supply of sufficient natural resources for the benefit of society, achieved without unacceptable adverse social or environmental impacts.

    As such Minatura2020 aims to contribute to providing Europe’s society with a policy framework supporting the sustainable supply of those mineral raw materials that are extracted within the EU.

  • Our role in the project

    LPRC has been actively contributing to WP1 – Land use assessment and WP2  – Development of Harmonised Mapping Framework by deploying a combination of foresight methods for strategic and policy analysis. As part of Task 1.3 – Future Land use Scenario Planning, LPRC organised a foresight workshop that focussed on developing a log-frame to forecast future land-use for the case study countries of the project. As part of dissemination, besides raising awareness towards the project at a national level, staff members will actively participate in organising a Pan-European MINATURA event organised in Brussel, 10th of November 2017.
