Today we will present the ReConfirm initiative in León at the Governance and policy within mining and metallurgy EU Regions conference. The main objectives are:
– To discuss a European roadmap by exchanging best practices on how to foster sustainable mining through Smart Specialisation Strategy (RIS3)
– To set up an European-wide mirror of regions considering mining and metallurgy within their RIS3
– To create a large-scale demonstrator between EU regions boosting mining and metallurgy, covering everything from primary to end-user applications, to ensure the main industrial value chains’ core of the economic engine and cluster and interlink present EU initiatives on raw materials, mining and metallurgy at regional level.
The event is organised by MIREU mining and metallurgy regions of EU, ICAMCYL International center for advanced materials and raw materials, ERRIN European Regions Research and Innovation Network, REMIX interregEurope, Regional Council of Lapland and the Junta of Castilla y León.
