Participate in the open consultation on a Research & Innovation Roadmap 2050 for the European Raw Materials sector, under preparation by the EU funded research project VERAM – Vision and Roadmap for European Raw Materials.
The Roadmap will lay out key activities required to secure a sustainable and competitive supply of raw materials to European industries, boosting jobs and competitiveness, and contribute to addressing global challenges.
The consultation gives your organisation a chance to influence future R&I funding and the evolution of the raw material sectors in the mid- and long-term perspective. The Roadmap will indirectly influence future priorities of the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials (EIP RM) and EU’s framework programmes for research and innovation.
To access the consultation documents and deliver your input, please go to the dedicated VERAM web page and follow the instructions.
The draft Roadmap 2050 is organised into 4 broader priorities and you may contribute to one or several of those priorities as you see relevant:
- Supply of raw materials;
- Production of raw materials;
- Closed loops;
- New products and applications.
To deliver your input, please send the documents using track changes in Word
to [email protected] no later than 15 December 2017.
Should you need any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact the Consultation Secretariat: [email protected]
The input will be key to the finalisation of the Roadmap by April 2018 and the consultation is open for all stakeholders. We count on your contribution as well as support in spreading the word to other stakeholders that might want to take part in this process.
On behalf of the VERAM projects partners,
