It will bring the EU recovery program, circular economy, green transformation and the importance of resilient value chains for the European economy into focus. Other topics that will be touched upon are the the need for increased quantities of mineral raw materials and how the EU must ensure the security of supply, which match the projected demand of the European industry.

Building a New World. Made in Europe.

Mineral resources shape our future. The process of dialogue on expert level has begun.

Electric cars, smart technology, the Internet of Things – the disruptive technological revolution will bring with it unlimited possibilities for innovative products and new services in the coming decades. Resources form the basis of these technologies and products. But what do we have to do to strengthen the value-creation chains of the European technologies of the future?

EUMICON’s Europe-wide stakeholder dialogue attempts to answer this and other questions. In its context, relevant decision makers and ‘bright minds’ from various fields of the economy, research and politics will be brought together to jointly work on creating future solutions.
