Symposium I – Solutions for Critical Raw Materials under Extreme Conditions at the next E-MRS Fall Meeting
18 September 2017 - 21 September 2017
On 18-21 September 2017 the “Symposium I – Solutions for critical raw materials under extreme conditions”, co-organised by the EIT RawMaterials project EXTREME coordinated by ENEA, will be held at the E-MRS 2017 Fall Meeting.
In the framework of the initiatives aimed at the efficient and sustainable use of critical raw materials (CRMs) for the European Union, a dedicated Symposium I – Solutions for critical raw materials under extreme conditions will be held during the next E-MRS Fall Meeting, one of the most important European conferences on material science, at the Warsaw University of Technology from 18 to 21 September. In particular, the symposium is focused on the optimization in the use of CRMs under challenging conditions of temperature, wear, friction, load, corrosion, etc., and it is co-organized by the network of infrastructures EXTREME – a network of European partners coordinated by ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development) through a project funded by EIT RawMaterials – together with the COST Action CRM-EXTREME and the EIP Raw Materials commitment SUBST-EXTREME.
The symposium aims to provide a unique platform to a wide range of international researchers and companies who are engaged in performing cutting edge multidisciplinary research on strategic critical raw materials (CRMs) substitution, new materials design, LCA, recycling, and technological solutions for circular economy, for applications of CRMs under severe conditions reached in technological and industrial sectors such as transportation, mechanical machining, energy, and construction.
A representative from the Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials Unit of the European Commission and a representative from EIT RawMaterials will also participate to present an overview of the ongoing European strategies and activities in the considered fields.
Contributions through oral or poster presentations are welcome. Abstracts can be submitted directly at the conference website.
The deadline for abstract submission is: 16 June 2017
After regular peer review process, the full papers will be published in the open access journal IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering (IOP Publishing).
