This report documents the first workshop related to the UNEXMIN research roadmapping process. The workshop was held in Bled, Slovenia, on the 30th of January, 2018. Since a new technology line of use of robotics in mining will be developed and marketed within the UNEXMIN project, such research roadmapping activities are the key points to evaluate its “policy push/market pull” potential.
The workshop provided useful information on possible future updates of the UNEXMIN technology components, related to software and hardware, on the short (5 years period), medium (15 years period) and long-term (30 years period) and collected inputs on the future of the technology considering different scenarios for raw materials in Europe. The outcomes of this workshop, where the first draft of possible technology updates were created, will feed the next roadmap activities and allow the development of the research roadmapping process.
