About IRTC

IRTC will establish an international Round Table on approaches towards assessing materials criticality, taking place in the form of half-day workshops at established international conferences. Results will be published in the form of three joint scientific papers and a Roadmap on Criticality for authorities. The project shall advance the research in criticality assessment, foster international exchange and education in the topic, identify common ground and differences, and raise awareness towards materials criticality, especially in industry. It shall also lay the cornerstone for a long-lasting international network. The project is coordinated by ESM Foundation.


First Round Table to be held in Vancouver

« How methodology determines what is critical » – this is the title of the first Round Table on Criticality held at the international conference Resources for Future Generations in Vancouver, 16-21 June 2018.

The Roundtable goes hand in hand with a workshop organised by EIT RawMaterials. Keynote speakers include Prof. Thomas Graedel, Dr Christian Hagelüken, and Dr Karen Hanghøj. The call for abstracts for the workshop is open – IRTC would be happy to receive your contribution.
