“The Mining Innovation Commercialization Accelerator of Canada (MICA) is engaged in driving forward a greener future through mining innovation. We see Germany as a key partner to facilitate commercialization and mining innovation. Our delegation of SMEs is active in carbon footprint reduction, energy efficiency, electrification, and mining productivity. Our frequent join activities, building a strong flow of business interactions, are setting new standards for international partnership. We thank VDMA Mining and AMT Institute for their outstanding contributions in growing this alliance”, affirms Alain Thivierge, Director, Global Outreach, MICA and Directeur, Liaison Internationale, ACIM, ahead of the trip.

"Canada is increasingly coming into focus for German mining suppliers. We at VDMA Mining are very pleased that such a high-ranking delegation is visiting us. Two of our delegation trips to Canada are now being followed by this return visit to learn about sustainable mining, automation, electrification and increased efficiency and to intensify contacts with our German machine manufacturers," says Stephan Oehme, responsible for this topic in the trade association. Another visit to Canada next year is already being planned.
