Geo-Resources Strategic Sector Strengthening

Lead Organisation: University of Exeter

Investment Priority: Supporting Local Business

Fund: Strategic Sector Development

SPF awarded: £909,672

Location: Cornwall and Isles of Scilly

The Geo-Resources Strategic Sector Strengthening project has been awarded ca. 1M SPF funding to support and contribute to the provisioning of the geo-resources (with a spotlight on critical minerals) and materials required for the energy transition and sustainable development. The project aims to enable the growth of a self-sustaining cluster body, which will coordinate activities to support the development of a thriving and resilient Geo-Resources Sector that is a global-leader in sustainable and responsible geo-resources management. The sector has an important role to play in the achievement of Good Growth in CIoS (i.e., embedding Good Growth Principles within the +100 members of the Cornwall Mining Alliance, and sharing knowledge and practices internally and externally for the achievement of Good Growth). The project is partnered with the Cornish Chamber of Mines and Minerals, and Cornwall Mining Alliance, and it is supported by many local enterprises.

Through a series of commissioned studies and workshops, the project will consolidate critical information for Good Growth on the sector, develop a roadmap for sustainable sector growth, and transfer knowledge to key stakeholders to support data-driven decision-making. The project is structured around three work packages: Voice, Business Development, and Data, Information & Innovation.
