Dissemination & Communication

ITERAMS MEETING IN LEOBEN (Austria) Iterams partners had fruitful discussions during our last meeting in Leoben (2-4 july). Meeting was held by Montan University of Leoben https://www.unileoben.ac.at/ in the 24th month of the project.
First day was devoted to present each WP advances and most recent results to all ITERAMS partners. There was also time to meet each WP separately to discuss together the research new findings and the further steps..

On Wednesday, Montan University organized a visit to Erzberg mine and shared their research works in mines and tunnels. In the mine facilities took place the WP5, WP6 and WP7 workshop. The priority lines of exploitation and dissemination plans were presented and agreed. Different individual dissemination strategies were defined in working groups.

The meeting was closed on 4th of July. The last day was focused to coordinate the tasks between different WP and to plan the last year of the project. There was also time for management issues and wrap-up sessions.

The ITERAMS project was presented by Marja Salo from VTT in a seminar organized by Industrial Water Ltd in Hotel Haven, Helsinki, the days 6-7.6.2019. The theme of the seminar was future technologies related to water usage, analysis and treatment. Other participants from Finland included universities, large enterprises with diverse operations, and SMEs focusing on specific innovations related to water technologies.

ITERAMS was presented in the 29th SETAC Europe Conference held in Helsinki on the 29th of May. Claudia di Noi, from GreenDelta gave a presentation with the title “The experience of two European projects on how to combine social, environmental, and economic values in mining” You can download this presentation here which give details of the sustainability assessment that is being implemented in ITERAMS and SERENE projects.

The ITERAMS project and Anglo’s sustainability actions were presented in the EIT Raw Materials Summit in Berlin by Phil Newman, Head of Innovation at Anglo American. In addition, ITERAMS partners from Montanuniversität Leoben, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Outotec, BRGM and Amphos21 participated the summit and active discussions. The session “Minerals Processing and Materials Recycling” had Increasing resource, energy and water efficiency during raw materials beneficiation in focus. The Summit is the flagship event organised by the EIT RawMaterials and it gathered experts to discuss innovation and new technologies covering the entire raw materials value chain. The topics in the raw materials sector included strategies concerning supply and access of raw materials, European industrial competitiveness and innovation capacity as well as entrepreneurship and innovation in education. ITERAMS presented in the EIT Raw Materials Summit 20-22 May 2019 in Berlin.

Marja Salo from VTT was in the Expert forum "Fine particle flotation and sustainable use of water" - Jan. 30-31, Dresden.

ITERAMS connects with EIT Raw Materials

EIT Raw Materials organized "BASF RawMaterials Innovation Day" in Ludwigshafen, Germany, 13-14.9.2018. Eija Saari from Outotec presented ITERAMS as an excellent example of Outotec’s involvement in the European research projects in the field of water treatment. Päivi Kinnunen from VTT highlighted the importance of closing the water loops in mining and the role of the ITERAMS project in her presentation.

ITERAMS in Cluster event for ongoing mining projects

ITERAMS project participated with poster presentation the “Cluster event for ongoing mining projects funded by Horizon 2020" organized by the European Commission on 12/12/2017 in Brussels. The event included presentations of past and on-going projects in the field of mining, information about future plans for the Raw Materials sector and also a panel discussion. The event gave an excellent overview of H2020 funded mining projects.

ITERAMS was presented by the ITERAMS Exploitation Manager Kari Heiskanen (Outotec) in the 4th PROMETIA Scientific Seminar held on 28-29 November in Barcelona. The seminar focused on “Raw Materials Flexibility”. In addition to Outotec, several other ITERAMS consortium partners such as LUT, Montanuniversität Leoben, BRGM, Amphos 21, Caspeo and VTT participated the seminar. The ITERAMS concept focusing on water recycling and tailings valorization raised a lot of interest in the event.
