Over thirty projects were presented in a digital buffet


Last week, Swedish Mining Innovation’s annual Program day was held as a digital event. During the day, current information was presented on what is happening along the entire value chain, everything from the program’s major strategic investments to updates from ongoing pre-studies and full-scale and pilot projects. Almost a hundred people had registered for the event, and they dropped in and out during the digital project buffet. If you missed the Program day, or want to see one of the presentations again they are available below.
