VERAM Final Conference, 17 April, Brussels (BE)

The VERAM Final Conference, "EU Raw Materials 2050: Roadmap to Success", will take place on 17 April 2018 in Brussels. 

It is a unique opportunity for Research and Innovation organizations, policy makers, national governments, European institutions and industry representatives working in the raw materials sector to join and discuss the presentation of a common long term 2050 vision and roadmap for relevant raw materials in Europe. 

Christian Artelt, Chair of the ECTP Materials & Sustainabilty Committee, will give a speech in representation of ECTP.


The VERAM project, funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, aims to provide an umbrella and coordination function for raw materials related to research and innovation activities across Europe.

The long-term vision and roadmap to 2050 has the goal of tapping the full potential of raw materials supply and use in Europe, and boosting the innovation capacity of the sector. The outcomes of the project, which will presented during the final conference, will ultimately feed into the ongoing preparation of the next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9).

The Final Conference is divided into three main sessions:  
• Defining and exploring the playing fields (Scenarios),
• Creating a Vision 2030 and 2050 for Raw Materials, and 
• Creating the Raw Materials Roadmap 2050.
