Developing innovative Exploration tools
To enhance the probability of finding new sources of critical raw materials for the EU’s economy, EIS will apply advanced methods, to develop new geomodels and novel, fast and cost-effective spatial data analysis tools for mineral exploration analysis, mapping, and mineral systems modeling. The project will develop the “EIS Toolkit” and the “EIS QGIS Wizard”.
Reducing Exploration and Mining Footprints
To reduce the current high exploration costs and to improve the accuracy of the early exploration phase, the tools developed by EIS aim to reduce the impact of exploration and mining on nature. Making it more sustainable.
Reducing exploration footprints is key to EIS, therefore the project will make the most out of the already existing exploration data.
Raising Awareness to the general public
To succeed in the green transition and become climate-neutral by 2050, the EU’s economy needs an increasing amount of critical raw materials.
EIS will raise awareness of the importance of critical raw materials to the EU’s transition, economy, and welfare.
News & events
Our first press release is out!
“EIS, an EU project delves into a new information system for exploring critical raw materials“.
EIS had its official kick-off meeting in early June 2022. As part of the Horizon Europe program, EIS will play a critical role in finding new sources of critical raw materials by developing innovative exploration concepts and data analysis tools.
