Raw Materials on the Horizon – an ETP SMR Webinar Series

The European Technology Platform on Sustainable Mineral Resources (ETP SMR) invites you to join a series of three short webinars that aim to showcase some of the most prominent ongoing activities and ideas within the EU raw materials research and innovation community. In the drive for ever more advanced applied research and innovation and higher technology readiness levels required for a move towards climate neutrality, basic research should not be left behind as the foundation for major breakthrough discoveries. These webinars will demonstrate the current landscape of raw materials research across the EU and new ideas being developed among core researchers to help a critical industry adapt towards a greener and more environmentally conscious society.


Society and the environment in the raw materials agenda

Many regions across Europe have developed both socially and economically around the mineral resources they possess. This session delves into the challenges being faced by those regions and the solutions for future development, from re-skilling/up-skilling in a rapidly evolving sector, development of new technologies to reduce environmental impacts, to biodiversity protection strategies.
