Collaboration with other EU projects

Achieving the green transition is important to us. That is why MINE.THE.GAP collaborates with other European projects to support green and circular solutions in the mining industry and other sectors. Only together can we bring about the change and help our companies in diversifying their business models and rethinking the value chains.

RISE Innovation support

The overall objective of the project RISE is to accelerate the deployment of innovation, promoting the drivers and investment needed for sustainable and successful interregional cooperation. RISE will increase the capacity of less developed regions through successful interregional cooperations. The project supports the birth and development of innovative and resilient projects in 3 less developed regions: Bulgaria, Slovenia and Portugal.

Companies are invited to publish their opportunity in the “Partner Search” from 15th February 2024 until 15th March 2024
