UMI 2014

Harvesting Seabed Mineral Resources in Harmony with Nature

UMI2014 field trip
UMI 2014 Field Tour to Parque National Sudoeste Alentejano Costa Vicentina.

The 43rd Conference of the Underwater Mining Institute
September 21–28, 2014 • Lisbon, Portugal

Come and join us in sunny Portugal, where Heritage speaks of the great sea discoveries, celebrated in innumerable unique monuments, side by side with narrow, medieval streets like live Renoir paintings in every corner. Experience the famous Portuguese hospitality, and its remarkable cuisine and wines. Listen to Fado. It is a small country above sea level, but with a huge underwater realm. Visit modern research institutes and famous mines, some generated on, and under seafloors.

Find yourself visiting a country where multi-cultures live in harmony — European, American (North and South), African and Asian, and yet with a unique Portuguese soul, waiting for you to discover. Come and join the next UMI. Portugal welcomes you.
