Last-minute call for the 7th edition of Raw Materials week

4th November 2022 Last-minute call for the 7th edition of Raw Materials week

Raw Material Week 2022

Past years and the present situation have highlighted European vulnerability related to the supply chains of raw materials. Identification and lifting of legislative bottlenecks, and improving the European cooperation between mining and metallurgy regions, can be part of the answer to the problem. The periodic event such as Raw Materials Week is a big opportunity for these challenges.

This year the 7th edition of the Raw Materials Week will take place from 14 to 18 November 2022 in Brussels (stationary form), as well as an online meeting.

Aims of Raw Materials Week 2022

The organizers of the 7th edition of Raw Materials Week (RMW) provide in their official social channels that this year’s event will focus on the ninth annual High-level Conference of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on raw materials. Moreover, a wide range of satellite events will address the latest news on raw materials in the EU, including Critical Raw Materials, Trends in innovation and Skills for raw materials, EU-Ukraine strategic partnership on raw materials and batteries, EU Horizon technology success stories, EU-Canada Partnership, UNECE Resource management.


On the official information on the RWM 2022 it was provided that this year’s speakers will be Thierry Breton (Commissioner, Internal Market, European Commission), and Maroš Šefčovič (Vice-president for Inter-institutional Relations and Foresight, European Commission).


All detailed information, as well as registration for the event, can be found on the Raw Material Week official webpage.

We encourage all interested WMC members, and all people and representatives of companies related to the mining and metallurgy industry to join the meeting.
