Raw materials, Rare earth chemistry and quantum science have the potential to profoundly change our lives. Breakthroughs on the horizon could affect energy, communications, computing, and more. We invite scientists and engineers, educators and students, economists and environmentalists, policy makers and politicians, and the interested public to engage with us as we explore these themes.
Critical raw materials are a major geopolitical vector for the digital and green transitions. The EU as well as Serbia as candidate country, in its efforts to reduce dependence and diversify its relations, will need to address a multi-level approach to achieve its objectives.
A well-balanced legal framework that unites all relevant pieces of EU legislation, including chemicals management, is necessary to create certainty for investors and support Europe’s coverall competitiveness.
