Its vision is to develop raw materials into a major strength for Europe. Its mission is to enable sustainable competitiveness of the European minerals, metals and materials sector along the value chain by driving innovation, education and entrepreneurship.

EIT RM ProSchool has developed interesting courses for professionals. They will be piloted in universities and research institutions and LUT personnel is invited to participate in the pilot courses free of charge. Just open the link below and register for the course you are interested in and get new insights and a participant experience on an online course.

Course 1. Natural, social and economic forced shaping the mineral industry - how will the mineral industry evolve?

Course description

The mineral industry is subject to

  • its natural constraints – the characteristics of known and potential mineral deposits, the growing complexity and increased access difficulty to mineral and energy resources and, e.g. climate change
  • a wide variety of possible external shocks – e.g. war, commercial conflicts, financial crisis, pandemics and social clashes, and
  • the technological, economical and social trends – including political risk, global power shifts, market volatility, climate change, circular economy, the companies’ social responsibility and social license to operate, the world’s population demographic and available income growt

How will the mineral industry evolve subject to those forces and events? Rather than a traditional course, a collaborative workshop; rather than a presentation, a discussion – the course aims to involve the participants in discussions leading into insights of the future of the mineral industry.

Target Group

This course is reworked to be suitable for university staff. Normally the course’s intended audience includes professionals, managers, decision-makers and post-graduate students involved in the raw materials industry and interested in discussing and get an insight into future scenarios for the mineral industry:

  • Managers of financial institutions and funds
  • Potential investors in raw materials projects
  • Officials from government (local, state and federal) agencies and institutions
  • Media professionals covering the mineral industry
  • Graduate and post-graduate geology, mining, mineral processing and metallurgy students
  • Managers of mining and exploration companies
