"Towards New Models in Efficient Management of Critical Materials"

Under the auspices of the European Commission, the U.S. Department of Energy, Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization, the Third EU-US-Japan Trilateral Conference on Critical Materials will be organised in Brussels, Belgium on 29 and 30 May 2013. This year, the conference will focus on the development and implementation of new models in efficient management of critical materials.

During the first day, policy makers and executives of related industries from various world regions will present different strategies to manage critical materials in a more resource efficient way.

The targeted audience comprises officials, as well as scientists, industry, academia, research centres, analysts, economists and representatives of the civil society.

The second day will be devoted to a technical workshop to advance the trilateral cooperation. Workshop participants will be invited by the workshop organisers. The latter includes a discussion on how to involve joint cooperation in science and technology and thus accelerate the needed innovation in the field.

Additional information will become available in the upcoming weeks on this website.
