European Union Raw Materials Initiative

6 February 2013

In 2008 the European Commission launched the “Raw Materials Initiative” (RMI) 

Its aim was to establish an integrated strategy to respond to the challenges of sustainable access to and supply of raw materials, both outside and within the EU.

This project aims to organise and host a high-level half-day UCL Symposium on legal and policy issues associated with the EU Raw Materials Initiative. The Symposium will be an important opportunity to bring together experts from academia, EU institutions, private sectors and NGO community to discuss the main developments at EU level in this field, with a view to highlighting the key legal and policy challenges associated with its implementation, addressing gaps, and provide a valuable contribution to the design of improved legal and policy responses and of innovative research.
