Europe is a continent of 51 sovereign states of which 27 are part of the European Union. GeoERA is a joint programme of more than 50 individual Survey Organisations of 30 countries. The GeoERA covers the applied geosciences, addressing the following themes: Raw Materials, GeoEnergy, Groundwater and Information Platform. The importance of raw materials to our society today and to become carbon-neutral by 2050 are underlined by terms like Critical Raw Materials, Energy Critical Elements, Battery Minerals, Strategic Raw Materials. GeoERA Raw Materials provides unbiased and science-based knowledge and information to the public. GeoERA Raw Materials focuses on strategic and critical raw materials in Europe on land (FRAME) and in the seabed of Europe’s territories (MINDeSEA). With information on the raw material occurrence (known and potential) GeoERA Raw Materials provides a common raw materials inventory (MINTELL4EU), improved vocabulary and codes also on dimension stones (EuroLITHOS). GeoERA Raw Materials is a step forward to publicly available reliable pan-European database based on scientific knowledge and information through The European Geological Data Infrastructure of the EuroGeoSurveys (EGDI) as the hosting data infrastructure.
