SIMS - Greening the Economy HORIZON 2020 proposal has been granted.

I am leading the WP on robotics in mining in the newly granted project SIMS - Sustainable Intelligent Mining System, funded by the HORIZON 2020 program H2020-SC5-2016. 

The SIMS project aspires to create a long lasting impact on the way we test and demonstrate new technology and solutions for the mining industry. With a selected consortium ranging from mining companies, equipment and system suppliers to top-class universities, the SIMS project will boost development and innovation through joint activities aiming at creating a sustainable intelligent mining system, test and demonstrate new innovative technologies within the designated consortium, consisting of well developed mining operations, selected due to their maturity regarding innovative technologies, world-leading equipment and system suppliers, highly specialised SMEs and top-class universities.
