EuroWorkshops are a new form of professional training that EFG proposes since 2017 to European Geologist title holders and other geoscientists. This type of training activity intensifies the professional exchange of ideas and the contacts between geologists from all over Europe and also strengthens the European idea within the family of geoscientists. The EuroWorkshops  provide applied training for students and young professionals, offering special conditions for them. This way, young geologists become familiar with the vision and mission of EFG, while EuroGeologists have the chance to upgrade their knowledge and experience since the workshops are CPD certified.


The third EuroWorkshop “Meggen Days of Mineral Resources” will take place in Lennestadt-Meggen (Germany) from 12 to 14 September 2018.  Organised by the Professional Association of German Geoscientists (BDG), TRACTO-TECHNIK and the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) this workshop will allow participants to learn more about mineral resources and exchange views with colleagues during three days. The languages of the EuroWorkshop will be English and German.

It will start with a short course on the Application of the United Nations Framework Classification (UNFC) for Comprehensive Resource Management by Harikrishnan Tulsidas from the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and Sigurd Heiberg from PETRAD.

The second day, a conference on Mineral Commodities is scheduled. This conference is the annual meeting of the BDG-Forum of raw materials and it will include different speakers from Germany and abroad, among them, EFG President Vitor Correia, who will present the International Raw Materials Observatory. Other presentations of the day will be “Financing Opportunities for International Mining Projects”, “Public Financed Exploration”, and the “Mineral Resources Studies and their Technical and Economical Due Diligence”.

The last day a conference on “Mining in Central Europe – Changes and Challenges” with a focus on Germany and central Europe will feature presentations such as “The resurrection of ore and spar mining in Saxony” and “Raw Materials production in Austria”.

EuroGeologists can benefit from a considerable discount and they will be awarded with 1.5 CPD points per hour of attendance.
