COLLABORATION

ADVISORS

Scientific Advisory Board

The PACIFIC project set up a Scientific Advisory Board comprising external independent scientists renowned for their expertise in the project fields. This Board will have the task of advising the Consortium and providing an independent Peer Review mechanism of the project progress, based on the periodic reports and deliverables produced by the project. The board members are:

 

  • Wolfgang Maier, Economic geologist at University of Cardiff
  • Richard Herrington, Economic geologist, Natural History Museum, London
  • Martin Mai, Geophysicist, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia
  • Chris Juhlin, Geophysicist at Uppsala University
  • Gordon Chunnett, Consultant, Cape Town, South Africa

CLUSTERING

 

Collaboration with other research initiatives in the same domain

PACIFIC partners will collaborate with ongoing research initiatives in the mineral exploration area, such as the European Innovation Partnership – EIP on Raw Materials, the European institute of Innovation & Technology – EIT RawMaterials and ERA.MIN2, so as to create synergies and optimise project results and impact.

The following H2020 projects have been identified for clustering with PACIFIC:

INFACT – Innovative, Non-invasive and Fully Acceptable Exploration Technologies

New geomodels, novel sensitive exploration technologies and data analysis methods which together are fast, cost-effective, environmentally safe and socially accepted.

HiTech AlkCarb – New geomodels to explore deeper for High-Technology critical raw materials in Alkaline rocks and Carbonatites

HiTech AlkCarb will make a step-change in exploration models for alkaline and carbonatite provinces, using mineralogy, petrology, and geochemistry, and state-of-the-art interpretation of high-resolution geophysics and downhole measurement tools, to make robust predictions about mineral prospectivity at depth. The results will be incorporated into new geomodels on multiple scales. The project brings together industry partners involved in exploration, geophysics and environmental assessment with two geological surveys, a major museum and five universities. The results will make Europe the world leader in this specialist area.

SMART Exploration – Sustainable mineral resources by utilizing new Exploration technologies

Exploration of mineral resources by utilizing new exploration technologies (Smart Exploration).

NEXT – New Exploration Technologies

Developing technologies that are more acceptable to society and that will invigorate and equip the exploration industry, unlocking unrealised potential in new and mature areas.
