During the day, presentations were given for each work package – in a total of 7, outlining their work, deliverables and reports, and major findings to the audience.
Some of the main products coming out of the MICA project are:
- A comprehensive assessment of stakeholders and stakeholders’ needs in raw materials intelligence;
- A collection of relevant raw materials data and the MICA metadata inventory;

The MICA final meeting was concluded with an endnote discussing the future of the MICA platform and the general outcomes of the project.
