    Tehran, Iran

    The 36th National and the 3rd International Geological Congress of Iran will be held in Tehran, 25th to 27thFebruary 2018. This is a well established event with more than three decades national meeting being organized by Geological Survey of Iran (GSI) every year since 1982. The congress covers all aspects of earth sciences regional to local scales studies, and deep process to surface features, as well as human and earth interaction through mining or dealing with natural hazards. The congress aims to bring together leading academic scientist and researchers and share their experience and new research results with others.  The congress provides also an opportunity to visit natural beauties and geological attractions of Iran along with unique civilization which offers visitors a distinct charm of oriental traditions.

    We, therefore, kindly invite authors to contribute to the congress through submission of their papers, abstract and attend this significant event.

    The VERAM project, funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, aims to provide an umbrella and coordination function for raw materials related to research and innovation activities across Europe.

    The long-term vision and roadmap to 2050 has the goal of tapping the full potential of raw materials supply and use in Europe, and boosting the innovation capacity of the sector. The outcomes of the project, which will presented during the final conference, will ultimately feed into the ongoing preparation of the next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9).

    Hotel Metropole, Brussels, Belgium

    GKZ, DG GROW and EASME welcome you to this new conference format which is an approach to increase impact from exploitation by merging different stakeholder groups and grant programs from EU, national and regional level. The topic of the research area comprises RDI and CAS actions around the valorization of domestic European raw materials resources, most of them low grade or complex ores in their setting. Presentations of technical and non-technical case studies will give best practice in clustering to engage exploitation for more impact and to convey new strategies of EC for more synergies between the program lines and member states' initiatives. A project-to-project section will allow the participants to share ideas and continue networking for further project implementation and proposal application. Speakers from DG Grow and EASME will give key notes on accompanying policy aspects and lessons learned about the industrial impact of HORIZON 2020 Raw Materials projects.

    THE PARTICIPATION OF THIS CONFERENCE IS FREE OF CHARGE!

    There are special conference rates for your room booking at Metropole Hotel, please use this registration form.

    EUROGEOSURVEYS IS CO-ORGANISING THE UNFC WORKSHOP

    About the Workshop

    The United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) is an important tool for natural resource management that can harmonise data from different classification and reporting standards and hence make a significant contribution in attaining some of the Sustainable Development Goals. Organised in the framework of the EU Raw Materials Week, the workshop on the “UN Framework Classification for Sustainable Resources Management in Europe” will show how UNFC could help to consolidate EU level data and information on mineral reserves and resources, present relevant case studies and discuss plans for its implementation in Europe.

    Who should attend?

    The workshop provides a unique opportunity to discuss a transparent and harmonised classification framework for mineral raw materials in a cross-disciplinary environment and is particularly relevant for EU policymakers, national government officials, academics, energy and minerals company executives, as well as finance, industry and environment experts.

    Venue

    Hôtel Le Plaza Bruxelles
    Boulevard Adolphe Max 118-126
