The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) launched in 2017 a project to develop recommendations for improving and supporting the implementation of better regional development policies in a mining and extractives context, and to increase the collaboration and knowledge sharing among mining regions and cities. As the objectives of the OECD project play well into the objectives of MIREU, the two decided to partner up and join forces! Ilari Havukainen from the Regional Council of Lapland represented MIREU together with Ilkka Nykänen from Business Joensuu at the 2nd OECD

The MIREU project has since the start collaborated closely with its sister project REMIX (Interreg Europe). The two projects do not only share eight partners but are also closely linked through their objectives and ambitions. Both projects put great emphasis on the need for European mining and metallurgy regions to collaborate and to map synergies between themselves to improve the conditions for the raw materials industries both within the regions and on an EU level. Several MIREU project partners have participated in the REMIX Peer Review Visits, which have taken place in the participating
