NordMin started in 2013 as a project under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers with the aim to strengthen Nordic collaboration for a sustainable Mining and Minerals industry in the Nordic countries. NordMin was initiated by the Swedish chairmanship of the Nordic Council as a strategic initiative with a duration of 4 years. The project management has been hosted by Luleå University of Technology and a number of activities have been rolled out over the last few years. The aim of this report is to give a brief overview of NordMin activities and also to draw some final conclusions on what has been achieved in terms of a closer Nordic collaboration within the field and how we can benefit from this in the future.




NordMin was a Nordic network of expertise and research focusing on sustainable non-energy raw materials, active during the period of 2013 to 2017. The network was managed by Luleå University of Technology in Sweden. NordMin supported research, development, innovation and education initiatives in the raw materials sector across all Nordic countries and Greenland. The strength and synergy deriving from the complementary capacities of the Nordic countries was regarded as the competitive edge of NordMin. This final report summarises the activities and results of NordMin and also includes some conclusions and recommendations. For more thorough information on results from the research projects in particular, it is recommended to read the final reports from the projects (see publication list). Documentation from the project is stored at Luleå University of Technology and can be provided on request. An accompanying financial report has been submitted to the Nordic Council of Ministers and is not reported here.
