GKZ, DG Grow and EASME welcome you to this new conference format which is an approach to increase impact from exploitation by merging different stakeholder groups and grant programs from EU, national and regional level. The topic of the research area comprises RDI and CAS actions around the valorization of domestic European raw materials resources, most of them low grade or complex ores in their setting. Presentations of technical and non-technical case studies will give best practice in clustering to engage exploitation for more impact and to convey new strategies of EC for more synergies between the program lines and member states ́ initiatives. A project-to-project section will allow the participants to share ideas and continue networking for further project implementation and proposal application. Speakers from DG Grow and EASME will give key notes on accompanying policy aspects and lessons learned about the industrial impact of HORIZON 2020 Raw Materials projects.

The participation of this conference is free of charge!
