Deposits in the EU – An Epitome of Minerals Information

The European Commission has recently adopted a European strategy for data ‘COM(2020) 66’, which foresees a data-driven innovation approach from which all the stakeholders involved in the European Green Deal ‘COM(2019) 640’ will benefit. Following this track, EuroGeoSurveys (EGS) has set its priorities and deliverables for the year 2020 to be fully in line with these major EU policy communications. The two maps are notable examples of the EGS community’s efforts in this direction.
