Three diggers working next to each other at a mine


The aim of work package 9 is to perform clustering activities with other ongoing and future Horizon 2020, EIT RawMaterials, Interreg and national projects related to MIREU within EU28. Clustering activities will be performed at an international level as well, based on the EU28 Member States (national and regional level) cooperation with International countries (e.g. Africa, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Greenland, Russia etc.). The main objectives of WP9 are to:  

i) Identify MIREU relevant projects within EU28 and Internationally in three major cluster categories (i.e. Policy and Regional Strategies, Research and Innovation, Socio-economic); 

ii) Develop joint initiatives for information exchange to understand the aim and objective of the projects; 

iii) Avoid duplication of work and improve efficiency;  

iv) Share best practices among the different projects and deduce synergies in achieving the goals of MIREU project;  

v) Develop measures of sustain cooperation, discussion, problem-solving in the clustering work;  

vi) Identify cross-cutting issues.
