Welcome to the closure conference of NordMin. NordMin started in 2013 as a project under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers with the aim to strengthen Nordic collaboration for a sustainable Mining and Minerals industry in the Nordic countries. NordMin was initiated by the Swedish chairmanship of the Nordic Council as a strategic initiative with a duration of 4 years. The project management has been hosted by Luleå University of Technology and a number of activities have been rolled out over the last few years. The aim of this conference is to give a very brief overview of activities and also to draw some final conclusions on what has been achieved in terms of a closer Nordic collaboration within the field and how we can benefit from thisin the future.

The grand challenges remains: Supply of raw materials, sustainable development in the arctic, energy solutions for a low carbon society and climate change.

All these issues are intimately related to the mining sector in the Nordic realm and NordMin was a first step to find a commonNordic agenda within the field of sustainable mineral extraction.
