The EU-funded INTRAW project has been formulated with the aim of mapping best practices and boosting cooperation opportunities related to raw materials between the EU and five technologically advanced non-EU countries (Australia, Canada, Japan, South Africa and the United States).
Each of these five “Reference Countries” is subject to similar global challenges and the project consortium now officially launches a set of reports analysing the contextual environment of these countries. The reports present the countries’ historical economic development during the 20th and 21st century in general, and in relation to primary raw materials management in particular. This analysis provides a solid basis for the forthcoming cross-impact analysis of the raw materials domains between the Reference countries and the EU.
