Recent success: TAIEX Workshop in Turkey – a solid example for GEM-RG results:


The seminar will provide an overview and – in some respect – a detailed knowledge of the European Union Community legislation with special emphasis on the geology and the mining industry related topics. Reviews and Member States case examples of best practices on the legal transposition and implementation of exploration, extraction and environmental legislation will be presented, discussed and applied for the specific needs of Turkey.
