EUROCORE: European Core Sample Collection for Master Training.

Regarding the evolution of the in situ exploration tools, this Eurocore KIC Master education proposal wants to assist the mining industry in the formation of students (Master, PhD) and mining companies staff, on the use of this innovative In Situ technologies for exploring metals from cores samples. Training people at the continent scale requires a full kit: core samples from various ore types, detailed knowledge on core, including its inside structure, field devices for training on manual measurements, automated data acquisition for providing large datasets management exercises, data management capabilities and ready-to-use workshops calling up teaching skills and methods. Target end-customers and/or key beneficiaries of the educational activity. The Eurocore KIC Master education proposal wants to assist the mining industry, from Junior to Major ones, on the use of innovative In Situ technologies for exploring metals from cores samples. Device suppliers will also benefit of this project, as WP3 and WP4 will develop and optimize the use of In Situ tools for mineralogical, geochemical and structural characterization. The educational centers, members of this EUROCORE consortium, will of course take advantage of this EUROCORE project and will feed their formation with the development of skills on capabilities and limits of each analytical technique regarding specific deposits. The research centers will also benefit of this consortium, in merging their experiences and strengths in order to deliver a common task force.

R2R-GeoMet-2016: Raw to recycled – a geometallurgical approach.

This course delivers integrated training and education initiatives suitable for practical training to support resource characterisation and geometallurgical integration.

CDIO: Conceiving — Designing — Implementing — Operating.

The CDIO™ INITIATIVE is an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers. The framework provides students with an education stressing engineering fundamentals set in the context of Conceiving — Designing — Implementing — Operating (CDIO) real-world systems and products. Throughout the world, CDIO Initiative collaborators have adopted CDIO as the framework of their curricular planning and outcome-based assessment. CDIO collaborators recognize that an engineering education is acquired over a long period and in a variety of institutions, and that educators in all parts of this spectrum can learn from practice elsewhere. The CDIO network therefore welcomes members in a diverse range of institutions ranging from research-led internationally acclaimed universities to local colleges dedicated to providing students with their initial grounding in engineering.

PETRUS III: Implementing sustainable E&T programmes in the field of Radioactive Wastes Disposal.

In line with the Lisbon strategy and 2020 perspective “Petrus” initiative coordinates since 2005 universities, WMOs, training organisations and research institutes efforts to develop cooperative approach to education and training (E&T) in the geological disposal with the purpose of expanding this cooperation under PETRUS3.
PETRUS3 project aims at continuation of the European Cooperation in this area including:
• Practical implementation of PETRUS training programme following ECVET principles: Starting from the outcomes of the previous project, we will experiment the elaboration and the implementation of training modules defined in term of learning outcomes in a “Competency-Based Curriculum”. The objective is to set up accredited and recognised qualification in geological disposal that can be achieved in parallel both through formal and PD training programmes.
• Elaboration of multidisciplinary training and research framework for PhD student:The objectives are i) to fast-track the research activities in geological disposal by proposing customised training programmes, ii) to organize periodic PhD workshops and iii) to enhance the emergence of multidisciplinary research.
• Development of strategies and frameworks for maintaining PETRUS initiative over the long-term: Following the recommendations of the PETRUS End-users Council, the PETRUS3 project will establish strategic plan for sustainability of the PETRUS initiative through i) establishing a steering board for coordination and follow-up of the PETRUS educational programme, ii) collaboration with the IGD-TP’s CMET Working Group iii) creation of an integration framework to the ENEN structure for the overall management of the radioactive waste disposal E&T activities under the association umbrella and iv) linking with the radiation protection platform EUTERP and related EFTS.
PETRUS3 strives to continue PETRUS II and ECNET international cooperation by strengthening the links already established with China and IAEA.

RACE-2016: RAw Communication & Engagement.

RACE’s primary objective is the development and enhancement of awareness and understanding of the broad area of raw materials (RM), and the potential careers available in this field through the development and implementation of a training module targeted at working professionals, Higher Education students (postgraduate), and Higher Education staff.

As participants progress through the module they will develop and enhance their own under- standing of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), in the context of Raw Materials. They will also develop communication skills and the ability to showcase the incredible potential of working in this important field. Participants will engage in carefully developed and selected assignments which will enable them to communicate an understanding of RM and which will promote careers in the field among the target audience.

 

CONVENIO MARCO DE COLABORACIÓN ENTRE EL INSTITUTO GEOLÓGICO, MINERO Y METALÚRGICO DEL PERU (INGEMMET) Y EL GRUPO DE INVESTIGACIÓN DE RECURSOS MINERALES (GIRMI) DE LA UNIVERSIDAD POLITÉCNICA DE MADRID.

DSCN15683PliegueCHEVRON1

Firmado el 29 de marzo de 2006, los dos organismos expresan su voluntad de colaborar entre si para el objetivo común de potenciar la investigación geológica de los recursos minerales, la protección del medioambiente y el desarrollo sostenible, tanto en sus aspectos científicos y técnicos como en sus aspectos formativos. Por ello, tanto INGEMMET como GIRMI participarán activamente en acciones de apoyo al Máster “Aprovechamiento Sostenible de los Recursos Minerales”, impartido en Lima en el marco del Programa ALFA de la UE a través de la Red DESIR y también apoyarán la formación superior de los profesionales de Ciencias de la Tierra propuestos por ambas organizaciones (cursos de Petrografía / Petrología / Recursos Minerales y de técnicas específicas de laboratorio, como Petrografía y Microtermometría de Inclusiones Fluidas o Microscopía de Menas Metálicas), la realización de tesis doctorales, la participación en proyectos comunes de investigación con fines científicos o técnicos y el intercambio de información al respecto.
