This call for proposals aims to support is needs-driven, transnational research projects on sustainable supply of non-energy raw materials in Europe.

Priorities and funded actions:

– To improve techniques for finding and mining the new resources that are necessary to satisfy the growing worldwide demand
– To improve the efficiency of material production and use throughout the whole supply chain
– To overcome metallurgical and especially extractive metallurgy challenges
– To reduce or avoid the use of scarce materials
– To generate reliable data and information on the global mineral resources industries, on capitalistic controls, trade and non-trade barriers, market drivers, recycling and related facilities, trade flows, life-cycle and material flow data, etc, and the development of modeling integrating economic, environmental and social factors as well as objective functions controlling them
– To ensure the training of the young generation that will have to cope with the multifaced raw materials issue
– To fill the research vacuum that developed due to decreased research activities in both public and private research centers

– Primary resources supply
– Secondary resources supply (recycling)
– Substitution of critical materials
– In conjunction with these three technological areas, horizontal activities under the areas of Public policy support and mineral intelligence and Education and International Cooperation can also be addressed
