Vision of the Consortium » Apply common EU mineral policy framework at national/regional level by different macroregional approaches » Connection of H2020-framework with other EU-funded programs » Increasing impact » Taking successful outcome of SARMa and SNAP, broadening both regionally and in terms of commodities addressed Sustainable Aggregates Management and Planning in South East Europe » SARMa (2009-2011) ˃ contribute to ensuring a stable +competitive supply of raw materials from EU sources ˃ Common approach to Sustainable Aggregates Resource Management (SARM) at local, regional/national, transnational level to ensure efficient supply of aggregates in South East Europe. ˃ 14 Partners in 10 Nations, ˃ HTTP://www.sarmaproject.eu » SNAP SEE (2012–2014) ˃ ˃ ˃ ˃ ˃ Developed a Toolbox for Aggregates Planning comprising 4 Handbooks: Best Practices in Sustainable Aggregates Planning How to Build an Aggregates Plan Consulting Stakeholders when Applying Best Practices Data and Analyses in Support of Best Practices in Sustainable Aggregates Planning ˃ 27 Partners in 12 Nations, HTTP://www.snapsee.eu Realizing the Goals of the OPTIMIN Commitment • MINATURA 2020 (Feb.2015–2018) ˃ Topic: Mineral deposits of public importance SC5-13a-2014 Http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/oppo rtunities/h2020/topics/2056-sc5-13a-2014.html ˃ Coordinator: MinPol • 24 partners of Europe ˃ Objective: • development of concept for definition/ protection of “mineral deposits of public importance” • harmonised European mineral planning policy framework MINATURA activity WP1 Land use assessment Mapping MDOPI priority zones Modelled future land use (change) implications Iterative learning proceces with feedback loops Regulatory framework Qualifying Conditions of MDOPI State of policies: mineral, LUP Guidance for land use planning Joint vision:EU MDOPI directive WP4 WP5 Demonstration and pilot testing – studies Potentital protected areas Testing and feedbacks Stakeholder involvement on MDOPI Potentital protected areas Testing and feedbacks WP6 Dissemination - European outreach Coordination and project management Development of a Harmonised mapping Framework WP3 WP7 WP2 Other projects EIP SIP OPTIMIN Standardization, permitting procedure + balancing mineral/related policies in Europe MINATURA Mineral deposits of public Importance (not only aggregates) in Europe SNAP SEE 13/27 SNAP SEE Sustainable aggregates planning in SEE SARMa Sustainable aggregates management in SEE Realizing the Goals of the OPTIMIN Commitment • INTRAW (Feb.2015–2018) ˃ Sharing international experiences from outside of EU : • call: Strategic international dialogues and cooperation on raw materials with technologically advanced countries, SC5-13b-2014 • Members of OPIMIN are involved ˃ INTRAW will map and develop new cooperation opportunities in Australia, Canada, Japan, South Africa and United States, addressing: • • • • Research and innovation; Mineral policies and strategies Licensing and permitting procedures; Data reporting systems; http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/ opportunities/h2020/topics/2062-sc5-13b-2014.html Increasing impact of OPTIMIN » OPTIMIN members are involved in several H2020applications/calls ˃ ˃ ˃ ˃ ˃ SC5-11d-2015: New sustainable exploration technologies and geomodels SC5-13c-2015: Innovation friendly minerals policy framework SC5-13e-2015: Raw materials intelligence capacity; SC5-13d-2015: Raw materials research and innovation coordination; SC5-13f-2015: Strategic international dialogues and cooperation with raw materials; producing countries and industry; » Consortium plans to participate in structural and regional programms/activities e.g. Danube program Conclusions » Intention: to share results of each (OPTIMIN related) project with all OPTIMIN consortium members ˃ ensure that overall impact is broad and meaningful » Supporting approach of circular economy: Both primary and secondary minerals are considered Thank you for your attention!
