H2020 RDI & CAS Projects

The Cluster Conference is a new approach to increase the impact from exploitation by merging different stakeholder groups and grant programs from national and regional level. The research topic comprises RDI and CAS actions around the valorization of domestic European resources, most of them low grade or complex in their setting. Presentations of technical and non-technical case studies showed best practice in clustering to enhance exploitation, increase impact and to convey the new EC strategies for a more synergistic approach between the program lines and member states ́ initiatives. Speakers from DG GROW and EASME gave keynotes on accompanying policy aspects and lessons learned about the industrial impact of H2020 projects. SLIM – Sustainable Low Impact Mining solution for exploitation of small mineral deposits based on advanced rock blasting and environmental technologies was presented by Celso Amor, Minera de Orgiva, Spain.
