The Delphi survey is now completed. Quick statistics:

Experts contributing to the Delphi survey were predominantly male (82%) coming from the Academics (51%) with a strong background in geological engineering (56% of the respondents marked 7 or higher on the expertise indicator). Other significant sectoral representation was Government/Public body (18%) and Industry (11%).

Altogether 74 experts participated in Round 1 of the Delphi and 63 in Round 2 representing 29 countries. Countries with a strong mining industry and/or historical mining activities were the strongest contributors in numbers.

Since the original Delphi was directed towards the earth science community an additional survey was also arranged addressing the FET ICT community. This survey provided additional records by 47 experts. Altogether 121 experts were mobilised with the help of the two surveys.
