What is the EurGeol title?

The European Geologist title (EurGeol) is a professional title created by the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) which recognises the ability to deliver a high quality of services within the practice of geology. Title holders have achieved suitable academic training and a level of professional experience, skill and competence to perform tasks within their professional practice. It also means that the geologist undertakes continuing education and training, demonstrating a personal commitment to stay up to date and informed within the sphere of his professional work.

International cooperation on raw materials


START DATE: 01.02.2015

The 36-months project INTRAW, which started in February 2015, aims to map best practices and develop new cooperation opportunities related to raw materials between the EU and technologically advanced countries (Australia, Canada, Japan, South Africa and the United States) in response to similar global challenges. The outcome of the mapping and knowledge transfer activities conducted in the first two years of the project will be used as a baseline to set up and launch the European Union’s International Observatory for Raw Materials as a permanent raw materials knowledge management body.

EFG Role:
The European Federation of Geologists (EFG) is the coordinator of a consortium of 15 partners from different countries including Australia, the United States and South Africa. Most of EFG’s members are also part of the consortium as EFG Linked Third Parties.
Highlights for this reporting period:

  • The consortium officially launched in February a set of reports analysing the contextual environment of the project’s five “Reference Countries”. The reports present the countries’ historical economic development during the 20th and 21st century in general, and in relation to primary raw materials management in particular. The launch of these reports has been actively promoted in March and April through a press release and the social media: http:/intraw.eu/publications.
  • The publication of three transactional reports on Research & Innovation, Education & Outreach and Industry & trade is currently under preparation and scheduled for September.
  • On 5 and 6 April 2016 a meeting dedicated to the upcoming tasks of Work Package 2 was held in the facilities of Fraunhofer (WP2 leader).


The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) was founded in 1963 to certify the credentials
of practicing geologists and to advocate on behalf of the profession.

AIPG represents the professional interests of all practicing geoscientists in every discipline.
It's advocacy and efforts are focused on the promotion of the role of geology and geologists in society.
