Expert Forum on Digitalisation

January 20 @ 8:00 am - January 22 @ 5:00 pm

Exploration, mining and mineral processing involves the collection and analysis of vast quantities of data from various scales of observation and over variable timeframes. As the digitalisation of the sector is progressing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) and data integration solutions are increasingly being used to collect, analyse and manage data and to visualize content in real time in variable contexts. AI, ML, DL, AR, VR and data integration are thus the topics of the first Expert Forum of the EIT RawMaterials Sustainable Discovery and Supply Lighthouse.

The goal of the event is to trigger interaction among European stakeholders who work with and develop innovative digital solutions with applications in exploration, mining and processing of minerals and metals.

Hence, the Expert Forum is aimed at stakeholders from the raw materials sector and experts actively researching, developing and employing digital solutions in exploration, mining and mineral processing (aligning with the strategic outlook of the Lighthouse Sustainable Discovery and Supply) – from universities, research & technology organisations, major companies, SMEs and start-ups. The event will feature a session on disruptive start-ups in the raw materials sector as well as a thesis award for outstanding MSc and PhD theses that incorporated smart and innovative digital solutions.

We do have sponsorship packages and booth spaces available should your organization be interested. For sponsorship opportunities please contact Sylwia Wasilewicz Crozier or +48 882 149 646 directly.
