Disrupted supply chains from the COVID-19 pandemic and the strategic role of raw materials, for example in Chinese policy making, underline the value of domestic raw material supply. There is a need for a renaissance of the EU exploration industry to unlock Europe’s hidden mineral wealth. SME companies can especially benefit from this challenge: GREENPEG endows them with a set of powerful tools and interpretation methods to substantially increase their portfolio and stimulate entrepreneurship. Resource inventories have become an important measure in raw materials policy-making. GREENPEG technology will broaden our knowledge bases of industrial minerals and critical raw materials. Indirectly, this will promote professional careers and education in mining. This in turn will help feed the resource base for green technology “Made in Europe”.
