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.
The knowledge and skills gained at DIM aim at increasing the employability of mining engineers. 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. Our program, in the long run, will lead to an increase in sustainable mining and processing activities, which will in the process result in economic growth and the creation of employment in the respective countries.
This is a lifelong learning project that will be implemented in close partnership with industry stakeholders in all project consortium countries. During the four years of project implementation, the following key topics will be analysed:
