The Mineral Intelligence Capacity Analysis (MICA) project provided stakeholders with the best possible Raw Materials Information, in a seamless and ﬂexible way using the European Union Raw Materials Intelligence Capacity Platform (EU-RMICP). The project brought together experts from a wide range of disciplines in order to ensure that Raw Materials Information is gathered, collated, organised and made accessible in the most useful way in order to correspond to stakeholder needs. To accomplish this goal, MICA assessed sources of relevant data and information and conducted analyses of appropriate methods and tools in order to provide guidelines and recommendations.
The EU-RMICP was incorporated into the European Union Raw Materials Knowledge Base (EURMKB). The MICA project has strong links to the efforts of the Minerals4EU project where the EU Minerals Knowledge Data Platform (EU-MKDP) has been developed.
The MICA project Consortium, 16 partners and 15 linked third parties, represents a multidisciplinary group with abundant experience in the diverse facets of raw materials research. The partners include geological surveys (GEUS, NERC–BGS, BRGM, BGR, GTK, GeoZS), research institutions (F-ISI, JRC), universities (UL-CML, UJF–LIG, NTNU, UCL ISR), professional associations (EFG, EGS) and two SMEs (MinPol, LPRC).
