Development projects

Georange is participating both as a partner and as Lead partner in different development projects especially around Land Use. 


One of these projects is STRADE

The "Strategic Dialogue on Sustainable Raw Materials for Europe” (STRADE), a 3-year research project (through 2018) to develop scientifically validated recommendations for a long-term European strategy on raw materials, successfully held its project kickoff in Darmstadt, Germany in January 2016. With participation from EU representatives at DG GROWTH and the Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME), the meeting united all seven project partners – Oeko-Institut e.V., SNL Financial, The Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy (CEPMLP) of the University of Dundee, Projekt-Consult GmbH, Georange, University of the Witwatersrand Johannesburg and DMT-Kai Batla (Pty) Ltd in Johannesburg, South Africa – to discuss the project goals, plan and deliverables.

The other project that we are Lead Partner in is a Vinnova SIP STRIM 2016 strategic project to explore and operationalize the concept SLO "Social License to Operate".  The STRIM agenda identifies SLO as one of nine areas in which the Swedish mining industry is expected to set an example for social, economic and ecological sustainability.
