This conference is organized by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Centre of Expertise on Resources and representatives from Dutch industry. The conference will explore how Europe can further strengthen, and improve information compilation and exchange systems on raw materials with businesses, science and research institutes, as well as governments. The aim is to present a proposal for a platform that will enhance the compilation and exchange of information, on the need for, and availability of raw materials. The European Commission started a few years ago assessing the security of rare earth supply. The organizers would like to see this initiative expanded for all relevant European raw materials (including organic materials) on a continuous basis. Confirmed key note speakers:
Hans de Boer, President of the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers (VNO-NCW)
Dirk Jan Koch: Special Envoy on Natural Resources, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
