Resources and industrial materials for the future
Duration: -
Location: EMPA academy Dübendorf (Switzerland)

EIT Raw Materials, EMPA and ESM Foundation are inviting to a strategy workshop on the topic of Resources and industrial materials for the future.

The workshop aims to identify demand and requirements for resources technology and innovation transfer in Switzerland and Europe, and also to determine cooperation methods between industry, research and politics.

EIT RawMaterials is the largest consortium in the resources sector with the vision to develop resources into a major strength for Europe.

We would like to discuss the following topics:

  • What challenges and trends influence the resources sector of tomorrow?
  • What does it take to maintain Switzerland’s standing as an attractive place for the resources sector?
  • How can innovation, entrepreneurship and education be fostered and encouraged?
  • What concrete measures can be taken by European cooperation?

Short presentations will provide participants with clues and information about the topics, which will be deepened in groups afterwards.

The evening will be concluded over an apéro riche (snacks and drinks). The event language will be English.

The event is on invitation only. If you are interested, please contact
