On November 7, our partner Granta Design will host a web seminar on Critical Raw Materials and their importance for the sustainability of products. Guest presenters from leading academic institutions (including Dr. Patrick Wäger from Empa) will discuss their collaboration to promote and support teaching of this topic, and we’ll hear about resources and learning opportunities for you and your students. As a lecturer in sustainability-related fields, you will get useful information for defining courses, and practical tools to deliver them. There is no cost; for the necessary registration, please refer to the seminar’s website.

Educating the next generation of materials experts on how to sustainably manage critical raw materials is of vital importance. The EIT project SusCritMat on “Sustainable Management of Critical Raw Materials” would like to get your contributions in an online survey asking industry and academics about a variety of topics concerning information sources on critical raw materials. The survey results will contribute to the development of new teaching materials and courses available to all. We would appreciate if you would take the time to complete the survey before October 15. Survey for educators and students on available courses, teaching resources, and data useage. Survey for industry on data useage.
