César Luaces, Rotate’s Project Coordinator, has recently presented our project at one of the most prestigious forums in the mining sector: Global Aggregates Information Network (GAIN) world meeting in Queenstown, New Zealand. More than 40 delegees from more than 40 countries from the five continents got together at this Pacific Island to discuss and address vital issues for the future of mining such as net-zero strategies, roadmaps, dust control, restoration, rehabilitation… and air quality and water management.

And it is precisely related to these matters one of two times that Rotate took the central stage because Luaces presented some of the project’s guidelines to all the attendants. The second time that Rotate was at the center of the stage during the meeting was when Luaces introduced the project to the delegees highlighting its importance for the future of mining. Rotate is part of Horizon Europe, the EU’s key funding program for research and innovation. It tackles climate change, helps to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and boosts the EU’s competitiveness and growth.

The program facilitates collaboration and strengthens the impact of research and innovation in developing, supporting, and implementing EU policies while tackling global challenges. It supports the creation and better dispersing of excellent knowledge and technologies.
