Prof. Dr. habil. Heinz Konietzky got a PhD degree (topic: mining induced seismicity) and later also the Habilitation degree (topic: numerical simulation using explicit methods). For about 15 years he has worked in the industry as project engineer, consultant and company manager in the field of rock and foundation engineering. Since 2006 he is working as university professor at the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg in Germany: Chair for Rock Mechanics and head of the rockmechanical laboratory. He has experience in numerical simulations as well as lab and borehole testing and works as expert for several organisations, like mining authorities in Germany and Austria, the Nuclear Inspectorate ENSI in Switzerland and the Institute of Geonics (Czech Republic).
Dr. Veiko Karu (PhD in Power Engineering and Geotechnology, TalTech, Tallinn, Estonia) is the head of the Mining and Mineral Technology Division at TalTech Department of Geology. He is a member of national Mining and Geological Societies and international Society of Mining Professors. His experience in international projects and cooperation (Horizon 2020; Horizon Europa; INTERREG, etc) with a system thinking approach is valuable when building business cases (research; development; international courses) for a circular economy in the raw materials sector. Dr. Veiko Karu research interest and technical competencies include mining engineering and design, mineral economics, mining environmental impact and remediation, mine waste management, circular economic and social sustainability, quantitative resource evaluation, and ESG management. As a Senior Project Manager at TalTech for Horizon 2020, Horizon Europa and EIT Raw Materials, Dr. Karu and his team are open to solving the challenges in the raw materials sector. TalTech is a core member of EIT Digital and EIT Raw Materials, where the team is partnering in a total of 44 projects (since 2016). Every technology needs raw materials, to secure the supply of the raw materials, entrepreneurs need to follow responsible sourcing models and secure social license to operate. Dr. Veiko Karu can also share information on how to validate the business case and further development through various available accelerator programs in Europa.
