The ROBOMINERS consortium, where LPRC participates and leads one Work Package – based on the application of foresight studies -, got together in an online way to discuss relevant aspects of this innovative project on the 7th of September.
For the purpose of this meeting, LPRC was responsible to present the status of WP8 – Active clustering and roadmapping. Until now, the team has been working towards clustering with other projects and initiatives with the aim to share knowledge on robotics and raw materials topics alike. After the WP status introductions, LPRC also prepared and hosted a Focus Group exercise with some of the project partners where relevant ROBOMINERS topics were explored and discussed.
The Focus Group exercise ran in a very standard way: the moderator – Luís Lopes – asked the pre-defined questions and each participant was requested to give their own opinions and answers. The exercise run in a way that a series of thoughts from real experts was collected.
Following the results of the exercise and the discussions held, LPRC will now compile and analyse the data collected and proceed with the implementation of this specific task.
