Policy Laboratory 3

The third MIN-GUIDE Policy Laboratory entitled “Innovation and supporting policies for mineral and metallurgical processing” aimed to provide an overview of and reflect upon recent innovation examples in mineral and metallurgical processing including recycling. 

The workshop took place on 18-19 May 2017 in Luleå, Sweden.

Discussion of firm-level innovation processes, such as product innovation, process innovation or open innovation, will be linked to Policy in the EU Member States. Furthermore, the laboratory highlighted how learning and implications from good practice innovation cases can be transferred to promote innovation in these sectors.

The Policy Laboratory format, designed by MIN-GUIDE partners, engaged participants from policy, industry, Geological Surveys, and research in an intensive and interactive exchange. This allowed the participants to hands-on learn from good practice cases, to explore transferability in different contexts and to reflect upon future needs.

Finally, the outcome of the third Policy Laboratory contributes to further develop the Online Minerals Policy Guide.
