A workshop exploring the research and technology development (RTD) opportunities for a sustainable extractive industry in the EU and candidate countries will take place on 3 and 4 November in Prague, the Czech Republic.
The workshop aims to provide stakeholders with a new perspective on the material supply chain in Europe. Five parallel sessions will take place, focusing on the following topics:
