Open Doors and Visit to Funded Projects

| 22 May 2019

Europe in my region” is an initiative of the European Commission that makes it possible to disseminate and increase the visibility of EU-funded projects. It also encourages citizens to discover European projects in the region where they live.

By sharing their images and experiences through social networks, using the hashtag #EUinmyRegion, people allow others to discover new ideas and think about how EU support can help develop such areas.

EDM – Empresa de Desenvolvimento Mineiro, S.A., joined this initiative by promoting a visit to the project “Aljustrel Mining Recovery Area (3rd and 4th Phases)”, where a special emphasis was given to the rehabilitation of the old Mine Gallery.

This gallery is located under the access road to the Bairro of Vale d´Oca in Aljustrel, another project that was supported by EU Funds, more specifically by the QREN 2007-2013 / POVT – Thematic Operational Program Territorial Enhancement / Recovery of Environmental Liabilities.
