    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.

    To continue the tradition of European workshops on 3D geological modelling that took place in the past years, the Swiss Geological Survey cordially invites you to join the community between May 21st  – 24th 2019 in Berne – Switzerland.

    The mistakes we make in the subsurface today can hardly be corrected in the future. The meeting is inspired by the emerging role of 3D geological modelling with respect to spatial planning in the underground. Besides the benefits of 3D geological modelling for society, the meeting shall also address case studies, advances in research and software development, trends, data dissemination, data infrastructure, application in resource management and demos related to the main topic. It focus on European GSOs, their needs, practical solutions and open knowledge exchange. However, exchange with academia and industry is much appreciated.

    We offer four conference blocks (slots for 30 talks of 15 min each, poster sessions and two break-out sessions), accompanied by two excursions and two social events - surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the city of Berne.

    Click here to check the attached First circular file for more detailed information. The call for abstracts will be sent out early next year.

    If you are interested in the meeting and plan to attend, we kindly ask you to pre-register (non-binding) in order to facilitate the planning of the meeting in the following link
