EIT RawMaterials @ E-MRS 2017
On 18-21 September 2017 the “Symposium I – Solutions for critical raw materials under extreme conditions”, co-organised by the EIT RawMaterials project EXTREME coordinated by ENEA, will be held at the E-MRS Fall Meeting at the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland.
In particular, the symposium is focused on the optimization in the use of CRMs under challenging conditions of temperature, wear, friction, load, corrosion, etc., and it is co-organized by the network of infrastructures EXTREME – a network of European partners coordinated by ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development) through a project funded by EIT RawMaterials – together with the COST Action CRM-EXTREME and the EIP Raw Materials commitment SUBST-EXTREME.
The symposium aims to provide a unique platform to a wide range of international researchers and companies who are engaged in performing cutting edge multidisciplinary research on strategic critical raw materials (CRMs) substitution, new materials design, LCA, recycling, and technological solutions for circular economy, for applications of CRMs under severe conditions reached in technological and industrial sectors such as transportation, mechanical machining, energy, and construction.
A representative from the Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials Unit of the European Commission and a representative from EIT RawMaterials will also participate to present an overview of the ongoing European strategies and activities in the considered fields.
