The Minerals4EU FP7 project – partly funded by the European Commission – is conceived to help meeting the objectives of the Raw Materials Initiative (RMI), with a view of strengthen a European Mineral Intelligence Network that provides a web portal, a European Minerals Yearbook and prospective studies. Such network is expected to generate data, information and expertise on mineral resources with the overarching aim to factually support the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on raw materials.
Minerals4EU partners include a variety of research institutions (e.g. national geological surveys) and groups from many European countries. The reference person for the EC Joint Research Centre (JRC) is Mr. Robert Tomas from the Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES).
