For the first, LPRC is maintaining and creating content for the website and social media at regular times. For the policy analysis, LPRC is writing a guideline based on the latest results on European qualification framework, skill and competence catalogue for the raw materials sector.
UNEXUP – For the UNEXMIN Upscaling project, the team’s tasks work around outreach to the public and stakeholders.
