Building a New World. Made in Europe.
Mineral resources shape our future. The process of dialogue on expert level has begun.
Electric cars, smart technology, the Internet of Things – the disruptive technological revolution will bring with it unlimited possibilities for innovative products and new services in the coming decades. Resources form the basis of these technologies and products. But what do we have to do to strengthen the value-creation chains of the European technologies of the future?
EUMICON’s Europe-wide stakeholder dialogue attempts to answer this and other questions. In its context, relevant decision makers and ‘bright minds’ from various fields of the economy, research and politics will be brought together to jointly work on creating future solutions.
„The world is constantly being recreated over generations. Mineral resources are the carriers of civilisation and technology.”
„The sustainable use of resources and energy and the creation of sustainable values through a holistic approach to product cycles are of central importance.”
The digitization of the value chain starting with the raw material offers extraordinary opportunities. We need to play an active role in making digitization effective and efficient.
„Research and operational innovation are drivers of every economic location. Technology and know-how are the most important prerequisites for a strong Europe.”
EUMICON links various stakeholders and partners of the mineral resources industry on a domestic and European scale. The necessary political, economic, ecological and technological framework conditions for the resources industry are discussed in the context of strategic discussion processes and dialogues, conferences, presentations and training programmes.
