RESOURCES INNOVATION CENTER LEOBEN

Fostering Innovation Communities in the Raw Materials Field

The Resources Innovation Center Leoben at Montanuniversität Leoben is home to the international partnerships of the university in the areas of sustainable science, education and industrialization. The first partnership was the EIT RawMaterials, a pan European 125-partner network for raw materials, a so-called Knowledge & Innovation Community (KIC) of the European Institute for Innovation and Technology. A KIC consists of a consortium of industry, science and education stakeholders, which try to contribute to the solution of societal challenges through innovation projects. In particular, RIC Leoben works on projects in the areas of education, sustainable exploration & mining, technological innovation and recycling and is an active partner in terms of the strategic development of the community. Our next step was to join the EIT Climate-KIC, which is also a Knowledge & Innovation Community. Here, the areas of Urban Transition and Sustainable Production Systems to foster a climate resilient society are our main focus. Another pillar at RIC Leoben is sustainable development, in which we are committed to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through various initiatives. One of the key activities in this respect is the implementation of the goals in the Austrian Higher Education sector through a joint network project of all universities. What all our partnerships have in common: they are thematically connected and synergetic aiming at sustainable innovation in the resources sector for a better future.

Anna Meyer, BA BA MA

Anna Meyer studied English/American Studies and Molecular Biology at the University of Graz and was also teaching and researching at the Faculty as a student assistant. After finishing her studies she did an internship in a language school in Bristol (GB) for 3 months and later taught German and English in another language school in Madrid (Spain) before she joined the RIC team.

In our RIC team, Anna is working as a research and project manager developing projects in the context of EIT RawMaterials and ensuring the efficient communication between the University Chairs, RIC Leoben and EIT RawMaterials. She is also involved in developing the Sustainable Development Goals strategy and organizes project meetings, workshops and other events.

EC-Geo-Sustain – European MSc in Geomatics for Sustainable Mineral Resource Management

A growing world population makes it will necessary to progress the extraction of mineral resources in areas which are more difficult to access and characterized by increased mining / geological complexity and more harsh working conditions. At the same time the primary objectives will remain to ensure the highest level of operational and public safety and also to make best and optimal use of natural resources by maximizing recovery. The basis for this is the use of most modern sensing technologies for geo-data acquisition and geo-data management, state-of-the-art methods for information extraction and analysis and the assimilation of this information in digital 3D decision making models, such as the resource models or mining subsidence prediction models.

The European Course on Geomatics for Sustainable Mineral Resource Management aims to develop a European MSC course that develops future leaders and innovators in this field. The educational content focuses on the following pillars:

 

– Sensing technologies for mine data gathering,

– Spatial (big) data management and visualization, and

– Spatial (big) data analysis and modelling.
