MOSMIN - Multiscale observation services for mining-related deposits.

We´re excited to announce our participation in the EU project MOSMIN - Multiscale observation services for mining-related deposits. Last week we attended the kickoff meeting in Berlin with our partners!

For the next three years, we will collaborate with our project partners to develop innovative solutions aimed at addressing some of the most critical challenges related to waste monitoring and valorization in the raw materials sector.
About the project:
MOSMIN is funded by EUSPA - EU Agency for the Space Programme under the program: HORIZON-EUSPA-2022-SPACE-02-54 — "Copernicus downstream applications and the European Data Economy" and will run for 3 years starting on the 1st of January 2024.

The overall goal of MOSMIN is to develop satellite-based, vertically integrated services that address the complex challenges facing the raw materials industry in the EU and other parts of the world.
Our objectives are:
- To promote the use of hashtag
#greentechnologies in the raw materials sector and facilitate access to user-friendly and fit-for-purpose Earth Observation-based products and tools.
- To decrease environmental impact and safety risks associated with mining-related operations.
- To strengthen the resilience and autonomy of the European industry by creating sustainable business models in the hashtag
#EO sector and increasing access to secondary raw materials, including critical raw materials.
- To improve transparency in extractive industries to facilitate hashtag
#ESG (environmental-social-governance) compliance processes and enhance social acceptance of mining.
