About the Raw Materials Week
The Raw Materials Week is a good opportunity for the raw materials community to discuss and exchange on all relevant issues: policy, technology, international cooperation, framework conditions, knowledge base, etc.
The European Commission organises the week around several events that address the latest news on raw materials in the EU. The 6th high level conference of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on raw materials is the main event, which takes place on 14 November 2018. The main topic of the conference is ‘Raw materials for low carbon and circular economy’. This theme covers issues such as:
- battery value chain
- cascading of woody biomass
- secondary raw materials for energy-intensive industries
Following the success of the Raw Materials Week 2017, the 3rd edition of the EU “Raw Materials Week” will take place from Monday, 12 November, to Friday, 16 November 2018 in Brussels. It builds up on a series of events organised by the European Commission addressing the latest news on raw materials in the EU. It will be a unique opportunity for the raw materials community to discuss and exchange on all relevant issues: policy, technology, international cooperation, framework conditions, knowledge base etc.
