Minerals and Materials for a Sustainable Future

For the first time, a Nature Conference will be arranged in Norway. “Minerals and Materials for a Sustainable Future” will be held in Trondheim Tuesday September 11 to Thursday September 13, 2018. The conference is a collaboration between Nature Conferences, Nature Geoscience, Nature Materials, Geological Survey of Norway (NGU), Norwegian University of Science and Technology and SINTEF.

The global increase in demand for renewable energy and a rapid shift toward advanced technologies drive the need for integrated research on raw material extraction and their transformation into products, in the context of the circular economy.

The conference addresses the role of minerals and materials in a circular economy, and how research can promote sustainable and ethically viable access to the resources we need.

The conference will gather leading researchers from earth science, material technology and other disciplines that study circular economy. It will strengthen international research cooperation in these areas and will also highlight the opportunities in the Scandinavian research community and industry.
