Raw Materials Week 2019

Published on: 02/10/2019

The fourth edition of the Raw Materials Week took place from 18 - 22 November 2019, in Brussels.

Event date: 18/11/2019 to 22/11/2019

Location: Hôtel Le Plaza

Organiser: European Commission

It was a good opportunity for the raw materials community to discuss and exchange on all relevant issues. 

The main event of the week was the 7th annual High-level Conference of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on raw materials. It reported on the continuing work on the EU Masterplan for a competitive transformation of energy intensive industries. Which, in turn, facilitates a climate-neutral, circular economy (also implying resource security for strategic industrial value chains), as well as supply chain transparency. The week also focused on critical raw materials, updating participants on the latest activities at European and international level, all with the publication of the next list of critical raw materials in mind. Other topics addressed included 

  • innovation and skills for raw materials
  • Horizon 2020 technology success stories
  • the EU raw materials knowledge base
  • forest-based industries 

Raw Materials Week centred around the following series of events addressing the latest news on raw materials in the EU.
