European Minerals Day (Europe)
24/05/2013 - 09:00 to 26/05/2013 - 23:00
The European Minerals Day, an initiative launched by IMA-Europe in 2007 for the European minerals sector as a whole, and organized in partnership with other mineral sectors and stakeholders, gives the opportunity to the European-wide public to explore the world of minerals and discover more about an industry that affects every aspect of our lives.
In 2013, European companies and organisations organized more than 170 events in 24 countries, welcoming each edition around 30.000 visitors.
The European Minerals Day is welcomed by the European institutions; in 2013 the European Commission chose it as a key communication channel on the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials. This was an excellent occasion to promote FP7 project STOICISM, to illustrate how the European minerals sector, together with downstream industries, contribute to innovation and resource efficiency.
