Sustainable mining in the Northernmost Europe - Lessons learned and practices developed

Project Details


The SusMinNor project is a collaboration between the Regional Council of Lapland, the University of Lapland, and Luleå University of Technology and has two main objectives - to enhance cross-border cooperation around sustainable mining in the Interreg Nord area, and to consolidate and synthesize important research results within the field of social science, specifically the impacts and synergies between mining and society in the European North. The project is funded with financial support from Interreg Nord and runs from 2015-2016.

The first project workshop occurred in Haparanda, Sweden (April 2016) for researchers, and the closing seminar, which took the form of a learning café, was held in Rovaniemi in September 2016. The Synthesis Report is the main deliverable of the project and highlights the major research themes in the social science literature on sustainable mining in Finland and Sweden, identifies good practices as well as knowledge gaps in the current research.
