strategic research and innovation agenda for the swedish mining and metal producing industry (strim) April 2013 The writing of this Agenda has been funded by a grant from Vinnova to RTC in spring 2012. The following organisations constituted the appli- cation consortium: Atlas Copco, Boliden, LKAB, LTU, RTC, Sandvik, SGU, SveMin and Zinkgruvan Mining AB. More organisations are expected to endorse the STRIM Agenda and to become actively involved in its implementation. The editorial board consisted of Bo Björkman (LTU), Göran Bäckblom (LKAB), Jenny Greberg (LTU) and Pär Weihed (LTU). The merged Gender Equality in Mining Agenda was written by Lena Abrahamsson (LTU), Eira Andersson (LTU) and Ylva Fältholm (LTU).

Depend- ence on the import of metallic and mineral raw materials is the highest for any region in the world apart from Japan, and Sweden has an excellent geological potential, high-tech industry, a good infrastructure and stable political condi- tions – all of which are factors that will contribute to a competitive Swedish mining and supply sector. Sweden is in the forefront of efficient mining both underground and in open cast mining operations. It has leading global suppliers of underground equipment for the mining industry and one of the most com- petitive academic environments related to raw materials. We set the stage by explaining why the STRIM Agenda has been developed in Chapter 2. In Chapter 3, a common vision is set for the STRIM Agenda or- ganisations. The seven Agenda areas related to primary and secondary resources are explained in some detail in Chapter 4. Each Agenda area has defined the research and innovation needs in the short (2013–2016), medium (2016–2020) and long (beyond 2020) terms. Each Agenda area also has a defined vision for 2030 and beyond, based on key performance indicators. 7 All Agenda areas have defined their short- and medium-term measures that can be implemented within national and international RDI initiatives. The measures have been targeted against expected technical, economic, environ- mental and social impacts in a clearly defined way (Chapter 5). In Chapter 6, the proposed measures are shown in an extensive table for future implementation. The form of collaboration for execution is further defined in a national strategic innovation area – Mining – to be an
