Mineral potential of the ESEE region
The RESEERVE project will extend the geographical reach of EIT RawMaterials to the ESEE region, help disseminate the knowledge and know-how of the EIT Community, facilitate developing new markets for new technologies, create opportunities for start-ups and SMEs and contribute to new job opportunities. The main outcome of the project will be a register of available primary and secondary mineral resources data of the West Balkan region.
The RESEERVE project targets the following 6 countries of the West Balkan, which are of particular strategic interest for the European raw materials sector: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. The West Balkan region is considered to be one of the future potential mineral supply areas of Europe, but access to relevant data for investors is still limited in the region.
