Educating the next generation of materials experts on how to sustainably manage critical raw materials is of vital importance. ESM, as Coordinator of the education project SusCritMat, would like to get your contributions in an online survey. The survey results will contribute to the development of new teaching materials and courses available to all. Complete the survey before the July 31 deadline and you will receive a free sustainability case study, part of the recently-developed Sustainable Development Active-Learning Tool Kit.
