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.
In April 2016, ESM, MatSearch Consulting Hofmann, Empa and Life Cycle Consulting Althaus, supported by SATW, organized a Workshop on the topic “Data network for critical Materials”. You can find further information and the newly published brochure here (in German; English version will follow soon).
