The MIREU project aims to establish a network of mining and metallurgy regions across Europe. The main objective of the project is to identify ways to ensure the sustained and sustainable supply of mineral raw materials to the EU and to promote investment, innovation and growth in the sector.

The MIREU project will bring together European mining and metallurgy regions to work together on improving conditions for the responsible development and secure supply of raw materials in the EU. The regions will share their experiences and knowledge to help tackle the fundamental challenges of establishing and maintaining an extractive industry. To guarantee the continuation of the network, a Council of Mining and Metallurgy European Regions will be established after the end of the project to carry on the activities. We also welcome new regions to join the MIREU network.

Timeframe of the project: 2017-2020
