European Rock Extraction Research Group
The European Rock Extraction Research Group (EUREG) was initiated by TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Technische Universität Clausthal (TU Clausthal, Clausthal University of Technology), RWTH Aachen University and Montanuniversität Leoben in 2016 to provide a platform for researchers and projects in all fields related to efficient extraction of raw materials. Now, our new blog https://eureg.blog/ went online. Here you will find all the necessary information if you want to join the group or perform high-level research with us.
Go pro active, study Sustainable Resources and Energy Supply
From the upcoming winter semester 2018/2019 the new bachelor degree program Sustainable Resources and Energy Supply will finally start. For all people interested in environmental topics, such as extracting of mineral resources, recycling of resources as well as providing sustainable resources and energy supplies, this is your chance to spring into action and make a difference.
Further information can be found in the video of the Division of Mineral Resources and Raw Materials Engineering!

In this October, the Real-Time-Mining Conference will be held in Amsterdam. Further information and application formalia can be found on the Real-Time-Mining homepage.
Digitalization in Mining
The RWTH Institute of Advanced Mining Technologies, AMT for short, receives 1.3 million euros in funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program for its SIMS project. SIMS is the first mining demonstrator project at RWTH Aachen University to receive external funding.
IMR turning to AMT – forward-looking research within the mining industry
In the course of the recent developments in the “Industry 4.0” sector, a new professorship with the name Advanced Mining Technlogies, short AMT, has been created at the RWTH Aachen, to guarantee a forward-looking intensification for research and a sustainable and efficient further development of the mining industry.
