The Erasmus+ Capacity Building program, created in 2014, aims at incentivizing the European universities to share knowledge with higher education institutions from other continents. The project “SUGERE” (Sustainable Sustainability and Wise Use of Geological Resources) aims at developing degree programs at different levels, from bachelors, to master and doctorate, in the field of earth sciences (Geology, Geological Engineering, and Mining Engineering) in universities from Africa. The main goal is to develop and implement programs focusing on three key areas: knowledge about earth sciences and natural resources, skills related to sustainable environmental development, and ethics and social economics. The purpose is to motivate both students and teaching staff to play a decisive role in the development of their countries through sustainable mining. Partners are working to integrate innovative ways to share knowledge and good training practices
