IRTC23 will be all about dialogue on raw materials for a sustainable future that will take place on 15-17 February in Lille, France.

Raw materials play an important role in the economic and technological development of, among others, the renewable & digital transition. At the same time, the supply of many raw materials heavily depends on precarious and unsustainable supply chains. This conference brings together international leading experts, practitioners and participants, to exchange perspectives and engage in in-depth discussions on how to assess and manage raw materials and criticality, and explore the potential of different strategies to secure supply. Therefore, IRTC23 welcomes a diverse audience from industry, academics and policy-making concerned with raw materials for a sustainable future.

Participants are invited to join the two-and-a-half-day conference to meet colleagues, keynote speakers and conference Chairs, engage in discussions in the sessions and join the networking activities.

On-site participation will be limited to around 180 people to encourage meaningful discussions and networking. Online participation in the sessions will be possible.

The early bird registration is now open until 15 December 2022.
