COBALT - Industry’s and Society’s needs for the sustainable use of raw materials in Europe: Exploring solutions for future action

28-29 November 2013, Brussels

This event is the opening conference of the FP7 project COBALT that is funded by the European Commission and runs from 2013 to 2015. The conference will bring together the EU and national representatives from industry, civil society, public authorities, research and geological surveys to explore and discuss opportunities and strengths related to sustainable raw materials supply and use in Europe. More specifically, it will look at potential solutions along the value chain from extraction to consumption and recycling at end of product life, and will also identify how industry, and in particular the manufacturing sector, can be best supported to meet the challenge of changing global material demands in ways which also deliver on social and environmental needs in relation to raw material use.

Conference admission is free of charge. For registration to the conference, please fill in and submit the online form until 15 November 2013.
