ROADMAP

TECHNOLOGICAL ROADMAP 2015-2035

The mining Roadmap, seeks to identify opportunities, R&D requirements and challenges to generate technological skills in the country, and a supplier sector with a strong technological foundation.

Additionally, this initiative hopes to achieve a common perspective with all the mining industry`s roles, through articulating the suppliers and the mining, and the generation of consensus between participants. For its development there has been some focal points that have been prioritized in lights of the main challenges identified in the industry, with the intention of identify challenges and the available solutions on these matters, and the possible needs in terms of human capital, R&D, infraestructure, tecnollogy, among others.
