Building a resilient Europe through
responsible mineral exploration

We use innovative methods and technologies to unlock the EU’s resource potential, improve public knowledge of the role of critical raw materials in the modern world, and promote environmentally and socially friendly mineral exploration.

What We Do

We assess current resource potential by using innovative approaches to identify new areas of exploration across the EU and beyond

Learn More

We survey the local communities' concerns and hopes related to mineral exploration and mining. The anonymised results will be published.

We raise awareness of critical raw materials and their significance for our modern world by developing an educational package for schools and universities

Who we are

We are a group of research institutions, SMEs, and mineral exploration companies, working on improving knowledge of mining and mineral exploration and increasing access to and supply of critical raw materials in an environmentally and socially sustainable manner.

We use state-of-the-art methods and technologies to gain an understanding of known mineral deposits and discover new ones. Through our project, we join the mission of strengthening the autonomy of the EU by boosting knowledge of and acting on its resource potential. 

Meet the Partners

Who we are
To match the demand for minerals and support the EU's raw material autonomy, the domestic potential for critical raw materials needs to be understood - but also the people's concerns, fears, and hopes related to the mineral sector. This is our main focus in AGEMERA.
