Vamos stakeholder workshop
The first ¡VAMOS! Stakeholder workshop is organised in Newcastle 11-12 June. This event is combined with the 2015 Council Meeting of the European Federation of Geologists (EFG), which will be attended by representatives from 24 countries from Europe. The Stakeholder Workshop programme focuses on initial dissemination and awareness raising for ¡VAMOS!, informing a broad range of stakeholders from industry, academia and professional associations from all over Europe. A visit to SMD’s facilities is organised, where discussions concerning the technological challenges of adapting seafloor mining technologies to submerged mining in open pits will be moderated. Finally the EFG Council Meeting will discuss in detail the strategies and means of stakeholder mobilisation for ¡VAMOS! in each of the countries represented by EFG.
