On 27th October 2020 the SLIM project (www.slim-project.eu) held its Final Event. This project – Sustainable Low Impact Mining – aimed to develop cost-effective and sustainable selective low impact mining solutions, in which several presentations covered the different work packages, achievements and main results of it.
In addition to the achievements of the SLIM project, there was also a clustering event, where other running EU projects of the mineral resources sector presented their projects and shared their opinions. Beside the SLIM project, seven further relevant H2020 projects were introduced. Among these projects, there were two that LPRC is part of: INTERMIN and ROBOMINERS.
The INTERMIN project – specialized portal of global raw materials training – was presented by Manuel María Regueiro González‐Barros (IGME). In his presentation, LPRC was mentioned among the consortium partners under Pillar 3: The Training and Educational Organizations, as the leader of WP2.
After that, the ROBOMINERS project – Resilient Bio‐inspired Modular Robotic Miners – was presented by Claudio Rossi (UPM), and La Palma Research Centre was also mentioned among the partners, as a Geo-scientific SME.
