Honorary Fellowship

Following a proposal from the External Relations Committee, Council recommends the following candidate for election to Honorary Fellowship at a future Ordinary General Meeting.

Dr Vitor Manuel Ramos Correia

kjhDr Correia is currently President of the European Federation of Geologists (2012 – 2018).  During his presidency he has taken on the major responsibility of a number of EC projects through preparation and delivery including financial control of up to 35 partners per project.  In this role, he has shown himself to be a supporter of the Society, being willing to use our skills and experience to aid this project management and to help maintain the professional reputation of EFG, and thus of the Society.  He has actively participated in a number of the Society’s scientific meetings in London. 

Dr Correia is a leading hydrogeologist in Portugal with particular knowledge and skills in the remediation of contaminated land.  He is also active in mineral exploration and exploitation, being appointed by the World Bank as an independent evaluator for mineral projects and by UNECE as a member of the Expert Group on Resource Classification. He has published papers on the supply of raw materials through the Futures 2050 project and the EU observatory. The matter of future materials supply within Europe is a current taxing issue for the profession, requiring a balance between the minerals reserves and society’s needs.

Dr Correia has shown himself a good friend and Council recommend that he be elected to Honorary Fellowship to enhance and cement this continuing collaboration into the future.
