In the VERAM project, funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, VITO and its partners aim to provide an umbrella and coordination function for the raw materials related research and innovation activities across Europe, in order to produce a common long term vision and roadmap to 2050 for the most relevant raw materials, including metals, industrial minerals, aggregates and wood. The successful implementation of the roadmap strongly relies on experiences, capabilities and constraints of European RM stakeholder groups.
The VERAM Research and Innovation Roadmap 2050 for the European raw materials is now open for stakeholder's input.
With the consultation, the VERAM partners from the abiotic and biotic sectors aim to better define and understand the priorities envisaged by different raw material stakeholders with respect to future challenges, objectives and concrete actions that the Roadmap should ideally address. Yet, it will lay out key activities required to secure a sustainable and competitive supply of raw materials to European industries, boosting jobs and competitiveness, and contribute to addressing global challenges.
The Roadmap will be the main outcome from the VERAM project, feeding into the EU’s framework programme for research and innovation. This is your final, and therefore crucial chance to influence future R&I actions and the evolution of the raw material sectors in mid and long term.
The consultation is open for all stakeholders. To access the consultation documents and deliver your input, please go to the dedicated VERAM web page and follow the instructions.
