Description

Critical Raw Materials (CRM) are strategically important raw materials for the economy, but are at high risk of supply shortages and, in addition, there is a lack of viable substitutes. Mining is essential for the extraction of these resources and has a key role in the technology industry. But how to incorporate the circular economy into mining?
The aim of the competition is to promote the knowledge of secondary and high school students about critical raw materials and the circular economy.
