VERAM Experts’ Workshop, 13 June, Brussels (BE)

Registration is open for the VERAM Experts’ Workshop, Europe 2050 – Preparing a Research & Innovation Roadmap for Raw Materials, which will be held at Orega – EU District in Brussels on 13 June 2017.

Partners of the EU project VERAM – Vision and Roadmap for European Raw Materials will explore opportunities and develop solutions to help shape the landscape of European raw materials research and innovation towards 2050.

The event will be hosted with a view towards the next EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme (FP9), and the new mandate of the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials (EIP RM) undertaken by the Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW).

Innovation in raw material value chains remains untapped despite the sector’s great potential. A long-term vision and roadmap to 2050 is crucial to achieve European economic growth and restructuring. Therefore, a more coordinated approach towards raw materials management will help reduce external supply dependency and lead to an efficient use of resources, improve the competitiveness of EU industry, and its environmental impact and eco-efficiency.

Don’t miss the opportunity to have your say on the future of research and innovation for raw materials!
