The Dubrovnik International ESEE Mining school brings together international experts in the field of raw materials in the heart of the ESEE Region. Within the thematic workshops and project work the focus lies on direct knowledge transfer from renowned experts to the participants, but also the creation of an open dialogue between graduate students, scholars, researchers, the industry and the wider society. Focussing on recent developments within the mining industry and the development of the mining sector, our program aims at transferring newfound, innovative theoretical knowledge, tested in practice, to our participants. Furthermore, wider general education on topics of mining and processing and especially the improvement of mining techniques, resulting in a lower environmental impact, help gain wider societal acceptance of raw material extraction and processing. In the long run, the program will lead to an increase in sustainable mining and processing activities, which will result in economic growth and the creation of employment in respective countries. Under the 2019 topic Small mining sites – Innovation in mining DIM ESEE project partners will discuss future and innovation potential for small and intermediate size deposits, currently representing vast majority of the European and the ESEE mining industry.
