CAMM2 High-risk projects

To be able to boost ideas that go beyond what is described in the research plans for each work package and in order to boost interdisciplinary research, CAMM2 launches an annual call for the funding of high-risk projects.

The projects selected for funding, should contribute to the overall goal of CAMM2 and be executed in collaboration with CAMM2 research groups (Exploration, Mining and Rock engineering, Mineral processing, Process metallurgy, Environment). 

In 2019 CAMM2   allocated 1MSEK to two high risk projects as following:

  • Microbial Valorisation of acid mine drainage sludge (ValorAMD)

Project leader: Leonidas Matsakas
CAMM2 grant: 500.000 SEK


  • Safer Final Storage of Arsenic (SAFSA)

Project leader: Jurate Kumpiene
CAMM2 grant: 500.000 SEK
