Late last year, FutuRaM partners headed to Brussels to present the project at the annual EU Raw Materials Week. The FutuRaM event was organised to engage with important stakeholders and collect valuable feedback on the project and its goal of applying and further developing the UNFC methodology for SRMs. Soraya Heuss-Aßbichler from University of Munich (LMU) led the discussion about the application of UNFC on resources to secondary raw materials and outlined the case studies that would be undertaken. Amongst other things, participants provided valuable feedback on which UNFC criteria they find most challenging in extraction or production of valuable minerals or materials, and which classification system is most relevant to their work.

This was the first of many consultations that will be held during the project. If you would like to be part of these discussion and provide your input to the project, please register to be part of our stakeholder network.
