JRC Conference and Workshop Report : INTERMIN Project

The Technical Workshop Channelling knowledge from European projects into the Raw Materials Information System (RMIS) was held virtually on December 3rd, 2020. This event, co-organized by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME), represented an important step forward to the already well-established dialogue between the JRC and the EU-funded projects on raw materials. This complements the information services of the CORDIS website and the EASME hub, providing
further exploitation and insight in relation to selected project outputs. INTERMIN project was represented by the Project Coordinator, Prof. Manuel María REGUEIRO GONZÁLEZ-BARROS.

Mr. Regueiro stressed in his presentation that INTERMIN identifies key knowledge gaps and the lack of needed skills in the raw materials sectors. For example, the global idea for the raw materials sector:
1. Skills catalogue for the raw materials sector;
2. International Repository of the existing training courses.
3. Training with industry to get the skills.
INTERMIN proposed to RMIS to include a new section within RMIS with the tile “Education and Training”, where people can find/learn about raw materials trainings through an international network of technical and vocational training centres for raw materials’ professionals (provided by INTERMIN). This can contribute to increase the EU competence and expertise in the raw materials sector.
