Raw Materials
The UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources (ISR), with the UCL Faculty of Laws and the European Institute,  held the first UCL Symposium on the legal and policy issues associated with the European Union Strategy on Raw Materials and Resource Efficiency on 8th November. Chiara Armeni, Research Associate with the Faculty of Laws-Centre for Law and the Environment – and with ISR, was the promoter of the event, which was sponsored by the UCL European Institute Small Grants’ Scheme.

The Symposium attracted more than 90 registered delegates from academia, industry, government and NGOs.  It was opportunity to stimulate academic discussion on the challenges of access and sustainable use of raw materials, as well as to identify key legal and policy questions to be developed under the ISR Research Agenda.
