Scientific payload demonstration in volcanic environments for astrobiological research understanding microbial colonization of fresh basalt. The volcanic eruption in at Geldingadalir (Iceland) in 2021 is an ideal analog site for studying the biogeochemistry of volcanism on other planetary bodies, both those with active (e.g. Io) and extinct (e.g. M...
The Horizon 2020 ROBOMINERS project (Grant No. 820971) is developing a modular robot miner prototype following a bio-inspired design, capable of operating, navigating and performing selective mining in a flooded underground environment. The project has been set up with the long-term strategic objective to facilitate EU access to mineral raw materia...
The UNEXMIN project developed a multi-robot platform able to explore, map and characterize abandoned, underground flooded mines at up to 500 m depth. This can possibly open new exploration scenarios so that strategic decisions on the re-opening of Europe’s abandoned mines can be supported by actualised data that cannot be obtained by any other ways...
The transition to renewable energy needs minerals to build wind, solar, and battery technology for energy production and storage. In order to help the development of this sector and to maintain and enhance the possibility of the EU to become more independent from the import of raw materials we need to improve the research activity for both known an...
We report Multi-Collector-ICP-MS analyses of Pb isotopes for hydrothermal deposits in ophiolitic units of the Western Alps (WA) and Northern Apennine (NA). The deposits include (i) volcanogenic massive sulphides formed on the seafloor of the Mesozoic Piemonte-Liguria ocean, which were subjected to subduction-(blueschist to eclogite facies) and coll...
