AGEMERA is part of the SuperCluster Lapland Geoconference in Rovaniemi

Several project partners joined the first edition of the SuperCluster meeting organised by EIS in Rovaniemi, Finland to build valuable connections with fellow projects, initiatives and colleagues in the sector 

142 registered participants from 52 countries, representing 69 expert organisations and 27 projects related to raw materials - here is a quick rundown of the SuperCluster Lapland Geoconference that took place in Rovaniemi. The event was the first of its kind and the biggest one reuniting so many projects working on raw materials and it was organised by the EIS project under the coordination of the GTK - Geological Survey of Finland. We were very happy to have been invited and we made the most out of the event, by liaising with our sister projects and setting the stage for future cooperation! 

How did we contribute to the event? First of all, we submitted a poster which was included in the poster exhibition. It was a great conversation starter with the experts in the room - we couldn't miss out on the opportunity to explain our mission and list the achievements we had in the first year of AGEMERA! Secondly, our coordinator, Jari Joutsenvaara from the University of Oulu opened the discussions by moderating the first session on the topic of innovative mineral exploration. AGEMERA was introduced by Marko Holma from Muon Solutions, one of our industry partners. On the second day of the event, Leena Suopaj√§rvi from the University of Lapland presented the preliminary results of her work concerning social acceptance of mining in her community (we had around 300 respondents on our questionnaires).

It was fantastic to be part of such a stimulating event and to listen to these important discussions for our societies. We are looking forward to seeing how these collaborations and partnerships will shape up - we have an extra-motivation now to fuel our work!
