We were pleased to welcome a highly motivated group of experts keen to review our scenarios on the state of mineral raw materials provision in 2050.

Those three scenarios were initially developed in 2016, within the scope of the EU-funded INTRAW project: 

  • Sustainability Alliance
  • Unlimited Trade
  • National Walls

The world has changed since 2016 and the International Raw Materials Observatory decided to review the scenarios in light of recent geopolitical events.

The workshop was jointly organised by INTRAW, SAFE and Fraunhofer in Brussels on 23 March 2023.

Many thanks to all participants and stay tuned for the release of the updated scenarios later this year!
