A responsible supply from domestic sources is a key element for reliable and future-oriented raw material security in Europe. Verified data and coherent information on raw materials, mines, deposits and resources – also across political borders - form the basis for sound and resilient decisions. Forty national and regional geological services and marine research institutes exchanged expertise and information to provide an improved EU raw materials database on European onshore and offshore resources.
The monograph "GeoERA Raw Materials - the past and the future” - gives an insight into GeoERA's four scientific raw materials projects - EuroLithos, FRAME, MINDeSEA and MINTELL4EU and their main products, results and further work. However, such information is a snapshot and continues to require constant updating and improvement.
