The IRTC 2023 conference, 15-17 February in Lille, is an interactive platform that serves as a compass for material risks in global industry and research. It brings together representatives from industry, academia and governmental and non-governmental organisations to exchange ideas and applications. Conference sessions will alternate between moderated panel discussions, lectures and direct exchanges with and between experts.
IRTC23 will be all about dialogue on raw materials for a sustainable future. Raw materials play an important role in economic and technological development of, among others, the renewable & digital transition. At the same time, supply of many raw materials heavily depends on precarious and unsustainable supply chains. This conference brings together international leading experts, practitioners and participants, to exchange perspectives and engage in in-depth discussions on how to assess and manage raw materials and criticality, and to explore the potential of different strategies to secure supply. Therefore, IRTC23 welcomes a diverse audience from industry, academics and policy-making concerned with raw materials for a sustainable future.
The global network “International Round Table on Materials Criticality” (IRTC), funded by EIT RawMaterials, has a crucial role in the international debate on criticality. In IRTC, leading experts and developers of criticality methodologies discuss different perspectives and requirements of robust criticality assessments, bridging academic expertise and industry practice.
REEsilience partner REIA will also be part of this event.
